Road Intersection Improvements Beginning Soon on U.S. 290 West at Martin Rd.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will construct a minor realignment of Martin Road at the intersection and a dedicated right turn lane addition on US 290 West including paving, drainage, signing, and pavement markings. This right turn will allow for more volume to travel through the intersection reducing travel times, as well as improve safety at the intersection. The work is expected to begin on or about September 24, 2021, with a targeted completion in the spring of 2022.

“This project will alleviate some of the traffic that tends to back up in the area and vastly improve safety at a key intersection on US 290,” said Commissioner Walt Smith, Pct. 4. “While the addition of turn lanes is a vast improvement, it’s just a start. We are committed to working with TxDOT to ensure folks feel safe on our roadways in Hays County.”

The project, valued at $1,353,925.37, is being funded through the 2016 voter-approved Hays County Road Bonds program. The Design Engineer is FSC, Inc. and the Contractor is Relmco, Inc. TxDOT will be responsible for managing and inspecting the construction.

Travelers in the area should expect delays during that time-period. For any questions about the project, please contact Hays County Transportation at 512-560-7734 or email
