Friday is the Deadline for Feedback about the Proposed Loop 360 Changes

Conceptual_Overpass_at_Lakewood_DriveThe deadline for submitting feedback about the proposed Loop 360 improvements is this Friday! We encourage Lakewood residents to review the proposal and submit feedback via email at cwotip-c@txdot.gov or by visiting the virtual workshop anytime between now and Friday, June 21, 2019. The virtual workshop allows you to download and review workshop materials, provide comments or ask questions.

The project proposes removing the traffic signals on the Loop 360 main lanes at Lakewood Drive and Spicewood Springs Road (E)/Bluffstone Drive and adding an overpass (where Loop 360 main lanes go over the cross street) with non-signalized U-turns in both directions.

Additionally, at a recent local meeting of TxDOT and local residents, the following was also proposed:

  • A new right hand lane to allow for access to Loop 360.
  • Removing the landscaped island at the Lakewood community entrance for an additional lane. This was apparently proposed by a Jester resident.

If you don’t want TxDOT to remove our landscaped island or have additional opinions on the project, please make your voice heard via email at cwotip-c@txdot.gov or entering feedback on their virtual workshop website before this Friday, June 21, 2019.

Pool Closed Until Thursday Afternoon

The Lakewood pool was drained last week in order to perform repairs due to vandalism. A pool ladder was broken, tables were broken and thrown into the pool and broken glass was in the bottom of the pool. The repairs are completed, the pool is being filled with new water and the necessary chemicals have been added but the chemicals make it unsafe for use until this Thursday afternoon.

Please do not enter the pool area nor use the pool until Thursday afternoon for your own safety.
