WACO – An aerial photo shows the new striping on the Waco traffic circle.

A city official expects traffic on the circle to be up at least 10 percent when counts are taken later this year.

Texas Department of Transportation district spokesman Ken Roberts said the goal is to create more certainty among drivers entering the circle from Valley Mills Dr., LaSalle Ave. or Highway 77—especially out-of-town visitors bound for Magnolia Table, the restaurant “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines opened in late February in the former Elite Cafe building.

The restaurant is attracting about 7,200 diners weekly, Magnolia spokesman John Marsicano, said in an email response to questions.

A single lane now carries traffic around most of the circle, with a bypass lane that carries traffic from Hwy. 77 to La Salle Ave.

​A yield sign remains in place to warn Hwy. 77 motorists to reduce speed and use caution, Roberts said.
