City of Kyle Channel: City to cut ribbon on improved Kohler’s Crossing

STAFF REPORT

KYLE – For years, Kohler’s Crossing in Kyle has been an indispensable road for going from Jack C. Hays Trail to Interstate-35. But drivers took their chances that their tires would be worse for the ware after hitting potholes and a body-rattling railroad crossing.

Now, the city has improved the road to the tune of $6.7 million, with a ribbon cutting to take place Thursday at 1:30 p.m.

As he flashed a photo of the newly paved road at Tuesday night’s city council meeting, City Manager Tom Mattis said, “When I saw this, I thought it was taken in north Austin or somewhere.”

The road lies on the south border of a town center development within Plum Creek. The Plum Creek developers expect that portion ofr their project to be ready in about ten years.

The road has been reconstructed and expanded with a 100 percent donated right of way, a 150-foot bridge and a “quiet zone” railroad crossing that is much more smooth.

The ribbon cutting will take place at the Hays CISD Performing Arts Center. Light refreshments will be provided.
