Interim Intersection Improvements

While the Oak Hill Parkway Project is looking at long-term solutions to address traffic congestion and related issues, the Texas Department of Transportation is working on two interim intersection improvement projects in the Oak Hill area to ease congestion, improve mobility and enhance safety due to heavy congestion resulting from tremendous population growth.

The first phase of work began in May 2013 and was completed in September 2014. It consists of turn lanes between Convict Hill and RM 1826.

The second phase of work began in October 2013 and is expected to be complete in late summer 2015. It consists of intersection improvements between Convict Hill and Joe Tanner.
