As the Texas Department of Transportation continues planning construction along Loop 360 in Austin, it will host a second meeting Nov. 13 for residents to learn more about plans at Spicewood Springs Road.

TxDOT will be adding overpasses or underpasses at nine intersections on Loop 360 to remove the traffic signals in an effort to alleviate traffic congestion. Construction is slated to being in 2024 on the $250 million project.

Those intersections include Spicewood Springs Road/Bluffstone Lane, Lakewood Drive, RM 2222, Courtyard Drive, Westlake Drive, RM 2244/Bee Caves Road, Lost Creek Boulevard, Westbank Drive and Walsh Tarlton Lane.

The meeting is from 4-7 p.m. at the Westover Hills Church of Christ, located at 8332 Mesa Drive, Austin.

At the Nov. 13 meeting, residents can receive updates on the plans for Spicewood Springs, which includes adding an overpass and removing the traffic signals on the mainlanes. Residents will also be able to provide feedback on the proposed plans, and any feedback could help shape the design, said Bradley Wheelis, a spokesperson for TxDOT.

Environmental work and preliminary and final engineering plans are estimated to be complete in mid-2022, according to TxDOT.

The city of Austin is also providing $46 million from its 2016 Mobility Bond to fund improvements at the Spicewood Springs, Lakewood, Courtyard and Westlake intersections.

TxDOT held its first meeting for the intersections projects Sept. 20 for the Westlake intersection.
