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. A portion of construction costs will be funded through a Transportation Reinvestment Zone (TRZ) created by the City of San Marcos in partnership with Hays County 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 included in construction contracts.

In May 2018 the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) selected the FM 110 project for $30 million in construction funding.
