Two more deaths on Highway 71 put pressure on TxDOT

Share

Following the death this week of a LTHS student and his mother pressure is once again ramping for TxDOT to take action on what is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous roads in the area.

 

Calls are being made for a combination of more traffic lights, medians or turn lanes and a lowering of speed limits on the section of 71 through Spicewood west of Bee Cave and out to Highway 281.

 

The Save our Spicewood Facebook group are leading a petiton drive - specifically asking for:

 

"On Hwy 71, a left turn lane all the way from FM 2322 to the intersection of Highways 281 and 71, along with caution lights at busy intersections and businesses."
