The RM 2222 and RM 620/Bullick Hollow Road intersection in northern Travis County experiences significant congestion. A TxDOT study shows by 2020, travel times will increase by 40 to 59 percent within the corridor from RM 620 to Ribelin Ranch Drive. Therefore, we need to add travel capacity to improve mobility.  The analysis of proposed improvements indicates the travel times today could be reduced by about 60 percent.  This change will help maintain safe access to and from the schools located north of RM 2222 off McNeil Drive.

Proposed Improvements

Project 1
RM 2222 from Bonaventure Boulevard to Ribelin Ranch Drive
The project consists of adding a through-travel lane eastbound from Bonaventure to Sitio Del Rio Boulevard and westbound from Ribelin Ranch Drive to Sitio Del Rio Boulevard. Turn lanes and raised medians would be built within the project limits.

Project 2
RM 620 from Steiner Ranch Boulevard to RM 2222
The project consists of adding an outside northbound merge lane along RM 620 from Steiner Ranch Blvd. to a new bypass road to be constructed about a mile north of Steiner Ranch Blvd. to RM 2222.  Center-turn lanes and medians would also be built on RM 2222 between the new bypass road and RM 620.

TxDOT continues to work with local partners to secure construction funding in full anticipation of being ready to begin construction in fall 2018. In November 2016, Austin Voters approved the City of Austin 2016 Mobility Bond, which included funding for design and construction of improvements at three locations around Austin, including the intersection of RM 620 at RM 2222. The City of Austin will contribute $7.5M towards improvements at RM 620 at RM 2222.
