Cotton Gin Road construction date moves to May

By Sahar Chmais

Phase I of Cotton Gin Road construction is complete and Phase II is slated to begin on or about May 10. This phase has been rescheduled from its original start date of April 19.

Hays County Transportation Department will begin the second phase by paving the north side of the roadway and shift traffic over to the newly paved road. The switch will stop traffic from traveling in the westbound direction. Traffic will start traveling eastbound on the new paved road. Vehicles will still use Bunton Lane, Shady Oaks and Dairy Road for circulation.
Hays County Transportation Department has been working on the eastbound lane from Goforth Road to Bonanza Street for the past six months. Throughout this time period, traffic has been traveling one way in the westbound direction using GoForth Road, Bunton Lane, Shady Oaks and Dairy Road for traffic circulation.
For any questions or concerns about the construction project, contact the county at 512-393-2182.
