TxDOT leads local transportation projects on Loop 360, Bee Caves Road

Ongoing Projects

  1. The Texas Department of Transportation completed extended entrance and exit lanes on Loop 360 to improve intersections with Walsh Tarlton Lane, the Barton Creek Square Mall entrance and MoPac. A left-turn lane was also added on the northbound frontage road of MoPac at Loop 360 to create a triple left-turn condition. Final paving for the project begins this spring.

  2. Approximately 2 miles of Flint Rock Road—between RR 620 at Baylor Scott & White-Lakeway and Serene Hills Drive—will be widened and an asphalt shoulder added. The last of the box culverts are being installed at creek crossings, with driveway and street access underway.
