Thank you for your interest in improving Hays County transportation safety and mobility. Contact information is provided below should you have comments or questions.
Hays County and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) continue finalizing the design of the I-35 and Posey Road Intersection improvements. The purpose of this project is to enhance safety and mobility.

The project has been environmentally cleared and right-of-way has been acquired. The County is nearing completion of utility coordination and design approvals. Construction is anticipated to begin early-to-mid 2018 and take 18 months to complete.

Changes Include

-I-35 and Posey Road Intersection – Removing the existing Posey Road Bridge and reconstructing I-35 over Posey Road.

-Improvements to the Posey Road intersections at the frontage roads including left and right turn lanes and turnarounds under I-35.

-Six ramp reversals – Changing entrance ramps to exit ramps and exit ramps to entrance ramps. Locations include Centerpoint Road, Posey Road, and FM 1102 (York Creek Road).

-Modifications to the elevation of one ramp at Posey Road.

-Conversion of two-way frontage roads – At the start of construction, frontage roads will become one-way south of Posey Road for approximately two miles to York Creek Road (frontage roads north of Posey Road are currently one-way).
