AUSTIN, TX — Much anticipated improvements are coming to a road in western Travis County, following a groundbreaking on the FM 3238 (Hamilton Pool Road) widening project in Bee Cave.

“The region’s population is continuing to grow rapidly creating mobility challenges for area residents,” said Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Austin District Engineer Tucker Ferguson. “The Hamilton Pool Road widening project will provide a dedicated lane for left-turning traffic and shoulders for emergency use, which ultimately improves the safety, mobility, and traffic congestion along this roadway.”

The 6.3-mile project includes adding a continuous center-turn lane on Hamilton Pool Road from SH 71 to RR 12, and shoulders on both sides of the roadway. The current road is two lanes, with one travel lane in each direction. The improved roadway will feature three lanes, with one 11-foot travel lane in each direction, one 12-foot center-turn lane, and six-foot shoulders.

The $15.8-million project is expected to be complete by early 2024, weather permitting. The project contractor is Hunter Industries, LTD. All work will be done within the existing right of way.
