Segment 2 is the construction of a new two lane roadway from RM 2243 to 3,500 feet east (Segment 1). This will complete the roadway from RM 2243 to IH-35. Segment 2 construction is anticipated to start once Segment 1 is complete and take approximately 21 months to complete. The roadway is anticipated to be open by early 2020.
