Description Construction of new frontage road and ramps.
Status

TxDOT Pass-Through Financing agreement has been executed.  An open house was held on April 12, 2012. To view the open house handouts, click here.   A groundbreaking ceremony was held on January 31, 2013.  Construction is underway and is anticipated to be completed in late Spring 2015.

The County’s contractor Hunter Industries began a lane closure on FM 2243.  The westbound traffic is reduced to one through lane and a left turn only lane on FM 2243 from Scenic Drive to the IH-35 Southbound Frontage Road.  No traffic will be diverted or detoured, but there will be slight delays during the lane closure.  This shift is to allow the contractor to work on FM 2243 (Leander Road) to tie in to the new frontage road construction. For the latest construction update, click here.

Weather permitting, the County’s contractor Hunter Industries has rescheduled various lane closures for the asphalt paving on FM 2243/Leander Road to the night of Monday, December 1, 2014, through Wednesday, December 3, 2014, from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Thursday.   This work is still dependent on the weather conditions. This work requires closing various lanes for placing asphalt on RM 2243 (Leander Road) and the new northbound frontage road roadway intersection.  The traffic lanes will be returned the current configuration at the end of each night’s work, utilizing temporary pavement markers.  After the final night’s work the lanes will all be shifted to the north to accommodate the construction of the curb & gutter on the south side.  This alignment will continue to retain two through lanes eastbound and the westbound traffic will retain one through lane and a left turn only lane.  The traffic signal heads will be realigned to match the shifted lanes at that time.  No traffic will be diverted or detoured, but there will be slight delays during these lane closures. 

All other existing exit and entrance ramps will remain open.  An electronic message board will be set up to provide advance notification to the public for this closure and an off duty police officer will be on site during the closure.
