N. CR 122
Williamson County officials broke ground on a southbound left-turn lane at the intersection of Smyers Lane and Wyoming Springs Drive on April 29. A county release states the turn lane will provide a bay for cars to “stack up” prior to turning left into the parking lot of the Walgreens located at 2650 RM 620, Round Rock, without impeding southbound traffic.
“I’m pleased to get this safety project underway,” Precinct 3 Com- missioner Valerie Covey said. “The left-turn lane will help alleviate con- gestion in the area and allow for safe ingress to local retail businesses.” Current traffic volumes do not warrant a signal, county records show.
