ROUND ROCK, Texas - Improvements to the Wyoming Springs at Smyers Lane intersection in Round Rock are now underway.
Williamson County will install a dedicated left-turn lane southbound on Wyoming Springs Drive at Smyers Lane. This will provide a bay for cars to stack up prior to turning left into Walgreens, allowing southbound traffic to continue unimpeded.
Pct 3 Commissioner Valerie Covey and Pct 1 Commissioner Terry Cook were joined by others to break ground on improvements to the intersection.
"I’m pleased to get this safety project underway," said Covey. "The left-turn lane will help alleviate congestion in the area and allow for safe ingress to local retail businesses."
The project, which is anticipated to be completed in summer 2022, costs $355,892.50 and is being funded with voter-approved 2019 Road Bonds, says the county.
