FM 110 (East San Marcos Loop) Precinct 1
Project 2 of 2

Location

South Section: SH 123 to FM 621
Middle Section: FM 621 to SH 80
North Section: SH 80 to Yarrington Road/IH-35

Description
Partnership Program
South Section Map
Middle Section Map
North Section Map

This project continues the loop east of San Marcos and involves initially constructing two travel lanes (one in each direction) with 10-foot shoulders where no road currently exists for the approximately 11.3-mile corridor and includes an interchange at SH 21 and a railroad overpass at the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. As traffic increases over time, two additional travel lanes and additional interchanges would be constructed. Initial construction costs will be funded through Transportation Reinvestment Zones (TRZs) created by Hays County and the City of San Marcos to capture a portion of the increased value of development occurring along the alignment. Caldwell County will also contribute to the project cost. The County is funding and conducting project development simultaneously for the initial stage of all three sections. TxDOT will let and manage construction of the project. Water line relocations will be in construction contracts.

The project will also consider reversing ramps (changing entrance ramps to exit ramps and exit ramps to entrance ramps) in the following locations:

  • SB Entrance ramp between Centerpoint Road and Posey Road
  • SB Exit ramp between Centerpoint and Posey Road
  • SB Entrance ramp between Posey Road and York Creek Road (FM 1102)
