Continued work by the Texas Department of Transportation on the bypass between RM 620 and RM 2222 will lead to lane closures July 1 and July 6-9 in the Four Points area.

One southbound and one northbound lane of RM 2222 will be closed July 1 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. from a point just east of RM 620 south to River Place Boulevard, according to a statement from TxDOT.

From July 6-9, motorists should expect various lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the point where the bypass road connects to RM 2222 south to River Place Boulevard.

Motorists in the area should also be watching for lanes along RM 620 that will close intermittently as work crews install guardrails.

Scheduled for completion later this year, the bypass between RM 620 and RM 2222 will create an outside northbound merge lane along RM 620 from Steiner Ranch Boulevard to the 1.5-mile bypass so drivers can avoid the intersection of RM 620 and Bullick Hollow Road.

Cost of the bypass is $15.8 million and includes utility work along the nearby southbound lanes of RM 620 to support future electronic traffic control signage. A second project in the area has added a southbound lane on RM 2222 from Bonaventure Drive to Sitio Del Rio Boulevard and is in the process of adding a northbound lane from Ribelin Ranch Drive to River Place Boulevard.

Funding is from TxDOT and a $7.5 million city of Austin mobility bond.
