Drivers in west Travis County wanting to use RM 2222 to connect between RM 620 and Loop 360 should find an alternative route during the evenings from March 21 to March 24.

An upcoming paving project will close the existing eastbound lanes of RM 2222 between River Place Boulevard and McNeil Drive from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Westbound RM 2222 will be reduced to one lane as eastbound traffic shifts to the left, according to a release from the Texas Department of Transportation.

Drivers should pay attention to signs in the area directing traffic and should expect project delays in the case of inclement weather, according to TxDOT.

The paving is part of an ongoing improvement project for RM 2222 between River Place Boulevard and McNeil Drive. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2021. A second project in the area involves building a bypass between RM 620 and RM 2222 that avoids the intersection of RM 620, RM 2222 and Bullick Hollow Road.
