One of the most irregular intersections in Burnet County could soon see upgrades, including a new right turn lane and signal improvements, after the Texas Transportation Commission approved a 10-year state transportation plan last week.

The 2020 Unified Transportation Plan includes more than $77 billion in funding meant to improve public roadway safety and address congestion and connectivity issues throughout the state during the next decade.

Among the four Burnet County projects included is Project BUC16RD, which will set aside $1.62 million for fiscal year 2021 for construction to fix the right turns and the traffic signals at the US 281 and Ranch to Market Road 1431 intersection in Marble Falls. . . .
