The Williamson County Engineer/Road and Bridge Division is currently conducting studies and taking feedback regarding construction of a Southeast Loop stretching from SH 130 to FM3349, then up to US79. The goal of construction is to enhance mobility in the county to accommodate the rapid growth of Hutto and Taylor cities. Assuming the project succeeds in its bond election this November, construction could begin as soon as January 2020.
This project is one of five corridors proposed for study; other projects being considered is a connector between Sam Houston Avenue at Patriot Way to SH 29, improvements to Sam Bass Road from RM1431 to Wyoming Springs Drive, an extension to Ronald Reagan from IH 35 to SH 95, and improvements to US 183 from SH 29 to the Williamson County line. All five of these projects aim to accommodate Williamson County property growth.
