Northbound traffic on RM 620 can now get on a bypass road and access eastbound RM 2222.

AUSTIN, Texas — A new bypass road connecting Rand Roach 620 and Ranch Road 2222 in northwest Austin is open for drivers to use.

Northbound traffic on RM 620 can now get on the bypass road and access eastbound RM 2222, according to a press release from the Texas Department of Transportation. The shortcut is near Steiner Ranch Boulevard.

TxDOT began construction on the bypass in 2019. The southbound direction is not completed and is set to open “at a later date.”
