North Outer Loop, Phase II

City of Temple

We are pleased to share that Phase II of the North Outer Loop project in Temple, Texas, is now open!

The North Outer Loop is a phased project that improves mobility for the City’s continued growth. Phase I of the North Outer Loop project begins at Airport Road to McLane Parkway. Phase II of the North Outer Loop project began at McLane Parkway and ends at Wendland Road. This project widens the previous two-lane rural road to a four-lane divided arterial with raised medians and shared-use paths for enhanced pedestrian mobility. Additional project elements included drainage, landscape, and utility improvements.

The North Outer Loop project is part of the larger Outer Loop project that aims to reduce roadway congestion and provide direct connectivity, ensuring that Temple remains accessible for years to come. This loop strategically combines several existing roadways and thoroughfares, including Moores Mill Road, Old Howard Road, Hilliard Road, Research Parkway, and Old Waco Road. Several segments of the outer loop are already completed in west Temple.
