In the expansion of Eldorado, I've noticed that there is no turn lane for westbound traffic to turn into Rio Grande Drive (near 423). Additionally, the median on Eldorado looks like it is built out too far, which would make turning in to Rio Grande difficult.

Can anyone tell me if this will be fixed to ensure easy entrance and exit to the subdivision?

TxDOTs expansion of Eldorado Parkway does not include a median opening at Rio Grande Drive and so westbound traffic will not be able to turn into Rio Grande Drive once construction is complete. In addition, all northbound traffic on Rio Grande Drive will have to turn right onto Eldorado.

The neighborhood streets in this area are spaced too closely for all of them to be given a median opening with turn lanes. Coronado Trail and Northridge Drive will have median openings (with turn lanes) and so westbound traffic will be able to use those streets to access your subdivision.
