Transportation Updates1. Goforth Road expansion

This project, spanning I-35 to Bunton Creek Road, will widen the two-lane road to three lanes in some areas and four lanes in others. The tentative timeline calls for construction to begin in June, but right of way acquisition could delay the start.

Timeline: TBD
Cost: $9.04 million
Funding sources: City of Kyle

2. Bunton Creek Road upgrades

The project, spanning I-35 to Lehman Road, will add a continuous left turn lane to Bunton Creek Road to improve safety and mobility in the area. A three-way stop will also be added at the intersection of Bunton Creek, Goforth Road and Dacy Lane. Utilities—including drainage, water and wastewater—will be improved throughout the project area.
