Extension of Vail Divide nears completion, road remains closed to the public

January 18, 2023

Dear Lake Travis ISD Staff, Parents, and Guardians:

We are excited to share that the Vail Divide Extension Project in western Travis County is near completion. The roadway, which will connect Hamilton Pool Road with State Highway 71, was striped on Monday, January 17. Construction continues with the installation of guardrails, and a traffic signal will be placed at Vail Divide and Hamilton Pool Road near Bee Cave Elementary School. While it may appear to be finished, the road remains under construction and is currently closed to all traffic until all work is complete.

Notification will be provided upon projection completion. In the meantime, we thank you for your patience and urge all motorists to drive with caution in and around the construction zone.
