Austin — The Texas Department of Transportation was joined Friday, Oct. 25 by officials from Travis County, the City of West Lake Hills and the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to cut the ribbon on the RM 2244 Bee Cave Road Improvements project. The roadway was widened to include a continuous center-turn lane, new shoulders and pedestrian accommodations through the project limits.

“We’re averaging about 4,000 more vehicles on Bee Cave Road per day compared to three years ago when we broke ground on this project,” said TxDOT Austin District Engineer Tucker Ferguson. “This project enhances both safety and mobility for area travelers as the population in Travis County continues to grow.

“Three years ago, our agencies came together to create a better experience for drivers through the area,” said Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty. “This project demonstrates the value of community partnerships, patience for the processes, and the benefits of working together.”

The $29 million project was funded by TxDOT and CAMPO. Aaron Concrete was the contractor for the project.
