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 proposed project is needed to accommodate projected traffic in Georgetown and Williamson County. It would also improve the safety of the existing facility by upgrading the 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 possible alternatives to be evaluated during the study. The purpose of this second meeting is to update the public on the project and show possible alternatives that have been developed based on public input, as well as environmental and engineering constraints evaluated since the previous meeting. No formal presentation will be given, but TxDOT staff will be available during the open house to discuss the proposed project and answer questions.

Maps of the study area, refined 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 or at the Georgetown area office located at 2727 South Austin Avenue, Georgetown, Texas 78626.

People interested in attending the open house who have special communication or accommodation needs are encouraged to contact Jon Geiselbrecht at 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.

Verbal and written comments from the public regarding the corridor study are encouraged. Comments may be submitted either at the public meeting or in writing within 10 days after the meeting and must be postmarked by May 20, 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:
