ONGOING PROJECTS 1 RM 620/RM 2222 bypass Work continues on a state highway project that consists of adding an outside northbound merge lane along RM 620 from Steiner Ranch Boulevard to a new 1.5-mile bypass road that is nearly in place about a mile north of Steiner Ranch. The purpose is to connect RM 620 and RM 2222 while allowing motorists to avoid the intersection of RM 620 and Bullick Hollow Road. Infrastructure and poles have been installed by state

RECENT PROJECTS 2 RM 620 traffic signal upgrade In Bee Cave, the Texas Department of Transportation has completed installing new traffic signals at the intersection of RM 620 and Hwy. 71. The work is considered part of ongoing highway maintenance, which TxDOT funds from various sources such as the state’s gas tax and motor vehicle registration fees. Following coordination with the Austin Energy electric utility, the new traffic

signals began functioning June 1. The new traffic signals do not require closing and restriping traffic lanes at the intersection of these two state highways, according to TxDOT. TxDOT traffic counts for this intersection, as measured by annual average daily traffic, or AADT, have increased 10% at this intersection from the years 2015 to 2019. Timeline: completed June 2021 Cost: TXDoT district budget for traffic

crews for traffic signals at RM 2222, and work on the bypass intersection at this point is expected to take place during June. New traffic signals also have been installed at McNeil Drive. As part of work, the Texas Department of Transportation has been shutting down the right southbound lane of RM 620 to perform utility work to support future electronic traffic control signage. Timeline: December 2019-late 2021 Cost: $15.8 million Funding sources: City of Austin mobility bond, TXDoT

signals of $2.52 million. Funding source: TXDoT
