To accommodate the new lake, several roads must be relocated and new bridges built over the future reservoir. This includes:

  • Relocations on parts of SH 34, including a new SH 34 bridge over the new lake

  • Relocation of a portion of FM 1550

  • Demolition of four bridges

  • Adjustments to several county roads

Construction on these components is scheduled to begin in early spring 2021 and finish in spring / summer of 2023.
