Drivers in west Travis County headed southbound on RM 620 should expect delays beginning at RM 2222 to Steiner Ranch Boulevard on April 18 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Work crews with the Texas Department of Transportation will have the right lane closed due to utility work. The lane closure is expected to continue each night through April 22.

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 work is related to the ongoing construction of a bypass to allow northbound motorists on RM 2222 to avoid the intersection of RM 2222 and RM 620 at Bullick Hollow Road. The project consists of adding an outside northbound merge lane along RM 620 from Steiner Ranch Boulevard to the new bypass road, which is under construction about a mile north of Steiner Ranch.
