The in-person option will be held on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Parkside Elementary School, 301 Garner Park Drive, Georgetown, TX 78628.


The purpose of the virtual hearing is to receive public comment on the proposed improvements to RM 2243 in Williamson County. The virtual hearing will consist of a pre-recorded video presentation and will include both audio and visual components. The presentation will be available online at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 25, 2023.

Williamson County and TxDOT are also providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the online public hearing, which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of County and TxDOT staff and/or consultants and leave written comments.


The proposed project would reconstruct and widen the existing rural two-lane roadway to a controlled-access highway, which includes two mainlanes in each direction separated by a concrete barrier, with direct connections to 183A, Ronald Reagan Boulevard, and Southwest Bypass. The proposed project would also include three-lane frontage roads with access ramps on either side of the mainlanes. The first phase of construction will include a single frontage road from 183A to Garey Park, which would serve two-way traffic until the other frontage road is built in a future phase.  Additional phases of the project would be developed as growth warrants and funding becomes available.

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding the proposed project or the virtual hearing, please contact the Williamson County public involvement team at 512-400-4162, extension 1, or roads@wilco.org.

Accessibility The virtual public hearing and the in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public hearing or in-person option, please contact the Williamson County Public Affairs Office at 512-943-1195 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Monday, April 17, 2023. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for the County and TxDOT to arrange.
