Motorists at the intersection of Bee Cave Parkway and Bee Cave Road should use caution over the next few days as city crews are in the process of demolishing an existing median at that intersection.

The work removes a dedicated left turn for westbound traffic on Bee Cave Parkway to make room for a longer left-turn lane for eastbound traffic heading north on Bee Cave Road. There are two left-turn lanes at this point of the intersection, and the work in progress will lengthen one of the lanes from about 200 feet to 600 feet, according to Bee Cave City Engineer Kevin Sawtelle.


The work is funded from the city’s street maintenance budget, he said.
