These are some of the ongoing road projects underway in and around New Braunfels.

1. FM 725 and I-35 intersection turnaround

TxDOT is in the process of making operational improvements at the intersection of FM 725 and I-35. The construction consists of installing additional operational turn lanes by grading, building structures and surfacing the roadway. The original completion date was September but has been pushed back to March 2024 due to a change of the retaining wall design and a change in the contractor.
