Bee Cave Road Construction
November 10, 2016 Update
At the November 9, 2016 City Council meeting, TXDOT Assistant Area Engineer Michelle Romage-Chambers presented an overview of the Bee Cave Road project including a timeline and summary of the various phases of construction.

Her Power Point presentation is available here.

October 31, 2016 Update
The City has received the following information from TXDOT:

  1. The official start date for the project is November 1, 2016.  On or shortly after November 1st, TXDOT's contractor, Aaron Concrete, will begin putting out signage and barricades on the side of the road to protect the workers who will be doing some utility relocation in the right-of-way near Redbud Trail.  This utility work is part of the TXDOT project scope.  The utility relocation work will last about six months.
  2. Over the next week or two, the lanes between Redbud Trail and Westlake Drive will be restriped.  They are currently about twelve feet wide.  They will be narrowed to about 10 feet to give the contractor more room to do the utility relocation work in the right-of-way.  There will still be four lanes (two in each direction), but they will be smaller/narrower.
  3. While the striping  is occurring, there will be temporary lane closures.  Those closures will take place between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.  One lane in each direction will be maintained during the striping.
