Drivers can expect to see road work happening this summer on RM 620 in the Steiner Ranch, Austin and Cedar Park areas, and later this fall, construction will start in the area of RM 620 and RM 2222 on another project.

The Texas Department of Transportation plans to start putting up barricades May 29 and workers will then begin road repairs and repaving work on RM 620. Construction is expected to take about four months.

TxDOT will first repave a 3.6-mile stretch from the Mansfield Dam to RM 2222 and then will work on the 1.7-mile section from Anderson Mill Road to SH 45 N at US 183.
