Road work continues on the southernmost section of Menchaca Road near the town of Manchaca. The Texas Department of Transportation will be closing the southbound left lane between Ravenscroft Drive and FM 1626 each day through May 8 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

The $12.1 million TxDOT project began this spring and will widen the section of road to four lanes with an additional center turn lane. Bicycle lanes and Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant sidewalks and curb ramps will also be installed as part of the project.

Part of the 1.14-mile stretch of road under development is outside Austin’s city limits and has retained the Manchaca Road name, despite the roadway’s name change to Menchaca within the city limits.
