A Texas Department of Transportation project to install partially displaced left turn lanes on FM 306 between Town Center Drive and I-35 North Frontage Road is expected to be operational for traffic on Feb. 2, according to TxDOT.

The work is part of the northern portion of TxDOT’s I-35 Improvement Project and includes several projects along I-35 between FM 306 and the Hays County line.


Drivers wishing to turn left onto I-35 traveling southbound from FM 306 will navigate to the two new displaced left lanes beginning near Whataburger and Panda Express to continue under I-35 and onto the frontage road.

Traffic lights and additional curbs have been installed along the roadway and police officers will be present in the area for several days to assist drivers as they navigate the new configuration, according to a release from TxDOT.

The entire project is slated for completion this summer, and once completed the intersection improvements should decrease delay times from 42 seconds to 27 seconds, per TxDOT projections.
