TxDOT is planning to revamp the 21-mile long stretch of RM 150 between Kyle and Dripping Springs in Hays County within the next few years. The project will add lanes in both directions from two total lanes to four, realign RM 150 from Kyle to Old Kyle Road, and will construct a new road connecting RM 150 to I-35. The project is expected to cost at least $189 million and will affect numerous landowners in Hays County.
The aim of this project is to increase mobility between the cities in Hays County with its more rural areas. Right-of-way acquisition, including the government’s use of eminent domain power to condemn private land, along with corresponding construction of the new roadway is expected between now and 2024.
