The Barton Skyway Ramp Relief project broke ground Feb. 3. The project, which will cost $10 million, is intended to alleviate congestion on local roadways and is expected to be completed by February 2024.

“Backups between the Bee Caves Road and Loop 360 cause congestion extending far beyond those short limits,” said James Bass, executive director for the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. “We hope to provide meaningful relief to the region with these improvements.”

Construction crews will widen the pavement on the auxiliary lane and merge the entrance ramps for Bee Caves Road and Barton Skyway on southbound MoPac. Weeklong ramp closures are expected on southbound MoPac during construction along with main lane closures during on-peak travel hours from 8 p.m.-5 a.m.

A press release from the Mobility Authority said, while not anticipated, weekend work may occur as needed.

Travelers can visit to learn more about the project and sign up for updates, the press release said. Lane closure information will also be posted on Twitter.

The project will be funded by Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority.
