The word I'm getting is that the realigned Newport Road is still on schedule to open THIS month, but towards the end.

This is according to a friend of mine who's doing construction work at the site.

He also provided this photo for me...

Newport Road and Berea Road

This is looking down Newport Road towards the west (towards Canyon Lake), and taken from the intersection of Newport Road and Berea Road. I'm not sure if Berea Road will still be called that within Audie Murphy Ranch.

However, when the realigned Newport Road opens this month, it won't be 100% open. That is, only the southern half of the lanes will be open. The realigned Newport Road is supposed to have four lanes, two going west, and two going east. When it opens, only the eastbound lanes will be open. But that doesn't mean you can only drive east. They'll split it into westbound and eastbound, one lane each way. It'll take awhile longer until they open the full Newport Road.

The reason for only opening the eastbound half, is because crews still need to use the westbound half for heavy equipment, as they still have to create pads on that side of the road.

At the time this photograph was taken (August 1), crews were still laying gravel on the road. The gravel comes from the boulders they had to dig out of the fields. They have a rock crusher back in there.
