Pflugerville, Texas, has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis. Once a landscape of sprawling farmlands, the city has blossomed into a vibrant hub of industry, commerce, and innovation. This transformation is mainly due to its strategic location along the State Highway 130 (SH 130) Corridor.

SH 130: A Corridor of Opportunity

SH 130, a high-speed toll road connecting San Antonio and Georgetown, has become a critical artery for economic development in Pflugerville and surrounding areas. This publicly-owned project, privately operated and maintained by SH 130 Concession Company, boasts the nation's highest speed limit at 85 mph and utilizes open tolling, allowing for a seamless travel experience.

Pflugerville's proximity to SH 130 offers convenient access to major transportation hubs like Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and the Austin Executive Airport. This connectivity makes Pflugerville an attractive location for businesses of all sizes. The city has experienced significant commercial development, with major corporations, small businesses, and startups setting up shop, drawn by the availability of land, lower cost of living, and a pro-business environment.

Beyond economic benefits, SH 130 contributes to resident well-being. Pflugerville's location makes it an ideal place to live, offering residents a high quality of life with easy access to major employment centers, cultural attractions, and educational opportunities in Austin and surrounding areas.

Pfarm to Pfab: Celebrating the SH 130 Legacy

To celebrate SH 130's transformative impact, the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) hosted a special event titled "SH-130: Pfarm to Pfab" on March 28, 2024. The event was built upon the PCDC's tradition of informative lunches for local businesses and community leaders, delving into the past, present, and future of the SH 130 Corridor.

  • The event brought together regional mayors, developers, and key stakeholders to discuss SH 130's impact. Attendees gained insights into ongoing and upcoming development projects, participated in interactive discussions, and networked with industry leaders.
  • "Pfarm to Pfab" is not just about celebrating the past; it's about shaping the future. The event offered a platform for attendees to strategize and contribute to the future vision of the SH 130 Corridor and the broader "MegaTX" region.

Pfarm to Pfab is more than just a catchy title; it represents Pflugerville's remarkable journey. This event offers a unique opportunity to celebrate the city's achievements, explore its future potential, and contribute to shaping the dynamic landscape of the SH 130 Corridor.

The PCDC hosts a quarterly lunch with relevant topics for local businesses and community leaders. The event is free, and food is included. It allows businesses to learn more about development and local businesses and networks.
