Barriers going up on RM 2222 at MoPac for the next 3 weeks

Austin

To make way for new bicycle lanes on Ranch to Market 2222 at North MoPac Expressway, crews will start this weekend to put barriers up on RM 2222.

Beginning Saturday, crews will install temporary concrete traffic barriers in the median of RM 2222 under MoPac. The barriers are being installed to protect workers while they narrow the median and construct permanent crash barriers around the existing bridge columns.

Once the median is made smaller, crews will work on adding new bike lanes on the shoulders of RM 2222.

The work will require the closure of one of the two left turn lanes on westbound RM 2222 for access to southbound MoPac. Also, a portion of the eastbound right turn lane for access to northbound MoPac will be closed.

The work is expected to take three weeks. Drivers should expect some delays.
