Starting today, construction crews will begin utility, roadway and sidewalk improvements of the intersection at North LBJ and Sessom drives as part of the ongoing North LBJ Reconstruction Project.

Traffic with be shifted to the south two lanes of Sessom through the intersection, with one lane open in each direction. The intersection construction will begin Monday, June 2 and is expected to end by Aug. 15.  

The Texas State University entrance will remain open to entering cars only. Cars will not be allowed to exit campus at that location, but will be able to exit through Pleasant Street or Mathews Street.

Drivers will continue to be detoured northbound on LBJ and will use Chestnut as a southbound route for the duration of construction. Completion of the project is anticipated next spring.

The $6.5 million North LBJ project will reconstruct the roadway, add bike lanes and sidewalks, and upgrade water, wastewater utilities and improve drainage.

Proposed sidewalks will vary in width from five feet to eight feet and be constructed on both sides of the roadway. Bicycle improvements include 14-foot shared lanes. The existing undersized drainage, water and wastewater mains will be replaced with larger mains.
