Purpose:

TxDOT will hold an open house public meeting to discuss the proposed improvements to the SH 29 corridor between Southwestern Boulevard in Georgetown and SH 95 near Circleville in Williamson County.

Description:

The corridor study would determine the need for a proposed project based on projected traffic growth in Georgetown and Williamson County. It would also identify improvements regarding the safety of the existing facility by potentially upgrading the existing roadway to meet current design standards, including removing the roadway from the floodplain to the extent feasible, potentially constructing a new roadway in a new location between SH 130 and SH 95, or a combination of the two.

On Sept. 1, 2015, TxDOT held an open house meeting to introduce the project to the public and to get their input on the study area that would be evaluated during the study. On May 10, 2016, TxDOT held a second public meeting to show possible alternatives that were developed. The purpose of this third meeting is to allow the public another opportunity to review and provide comments on these possible alternatives based on feedback and interest received by TxDOT. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m.

Maps of the study area, alternative alignments and other displays will be available for review and comment. In addition, maps and other displays are available for review prior to the meeting at the TxDOT Georgetown Area Office located at 2727 South Austin Avenue, Georgetown, TX 78626. 

People interested in attending the open house who have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact the Austin District of TxDOT at (512) 832-7218 at least two working days prior to the meeting. TxDOT will make every reasonable effort to accommodate these special needs.

Comments from the public regarding the corridor study are encouraged. Comments may be submitted either at the public meeting or in writing following the meeting and must be postmarked by Nov. 28, 2016, to be included as part of the official meeting record. Written comments not submitted at the meeting should be faxed to (512) 832-7157 or mailed to:
