Williamson County officials will break ground on a southbound left-turn late at the intersection of Smyers Lane and Wyoming Springs Drive at 10 a.m. on April 29.

This turn lane, according to a county release, will provide a bay for cars to "stack up" prior to turning left into the parking lot of the Walgreens located at 2650 RM 620, Round Rock, without impeding southbound traffic.


Current traffic volumes do not warrant a signal, county records show. The project was bid in March for an undisclosed amount with M.A. Smith Contracting winning the contract, according to the county. Construction is expected to be completed in the summer.
