Description
Partnership Program
South Section Map
Middle Section Map
North Section Map
This project continues the loop east of San Marcos and involves initially constructing two travel lanes (one in each direction) with 10-foot shoulders where no road currently exists for the approximately 11.3-mile corridor and includes an interchange at SH 21 and a railroad overpass at the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. As traffic increases over time, two additional travel lanes and additional interchanges would be constructed. Initial construction costs will be funded through Transportation Reinvestment Zones (TRZs) created by Hays County and the City of San Marcos to capture a portion of the increased value of development occurring along the alignment. Caldwell County will also contribute to the project cost. The County is funding and conducting project development simultaneously for the initial stage of all three sections. TxDOT will let and manage construction of the project. Water line relocations will be in construction contracts.

Location Posey Road interchange at IH 35
Description
Partnership Program
Modifications to the IH 35 and Posey Road intersection are proposed that include removing the existing Posey Road bridge and reconstructing IH 35 over Posey Road, adding frontage road turnarounds at the intersection, two through lanes in each direction at the intersection with Posey Road, and conversion of frontage roads to one-way operation south of Posey Road to York Creek. The project will also consider reversing ramps (changing entrance ramps to exit ramps and exit ramps to entrance ramps) in the following locations:

  • SB Entrance ramp between Centerpoint Road and Posey Road
  • SB Exit ramp between Centerpoint and Posey Road
  • SB Entrance ramp between Posey Road and York Creek Road (FM 1102)
  • SB Exit ramp between Posey Road and York Creek Road (FM 1102)
  • NB Exit ramp between Posey Road and York Creek Road (FM 1102)
  • NB Entrance ramp between Posey Road and York Creek Road (FM 1102)

At the start of the Posey Road Project construction, the frontage roads south of Posey will be converted to one-way traffic operations, southbound only on the west side of I-35 and northbound only on the east side of I-35.
