Road Bond History

This web site is your link to updates on road projects funded by the 2000 Road Bond, the 2006 Road Bond and the Pass-Through Financing Programs.

In 2000, Williamson County voters passed a $350 million road bond package. Those bonds paid for the first phase of the county’s Multi-Corridor Transportation Plan. More than 70 road projects were completed including $150 million for right-of-way for toll roads SH 45, SH 130, Loop 1 and 183A.

 In 2005, the Texas Transportation Commission approved $174 million in road improvements in Williamson County through their new Pass-Through Financing road program.  The program allows counties to front the money for the design and construction of road projects with the state reimbursing the county for most of the expenses.  Williamson County and Texas Department of Transportation will count the number of cars using the improved roads and reimburse the County based on traffic levels semi-annually over a 10 to 20 year period.  These roads include US 79 between Hutto and Taylor and east of Taylor to the Milam County line, FM 1660, US 183 from South San Gabriel River to SH 29, RM 2338 from FM 3405 to Ronald W. Reagan Blvd. and the completed SH 29 turnaround bridges.

In 2006, Williamson County voters passed a $228 million road bond package for further road improvements.  The Williamson County Commissioners Court currently is in the process of updating the county’s Multi-Corridor Transportation Plan in order to plan and prioritize needed safety and mobility improvements to keep pace with the county’s continuous high growth.  On November 9, 2010, the Commissioners Court approved a project list to be funded with the remainder of the voter-approved 2006 bonds.

When we began the Road Bond Program in 1999, we knew that improving the infrastructure of the County was key to building a sound foundation for Williamson County's future. It would increase the quality of life for residents and help spur new economic development. We wanted to make travel easier throughout the County for everyone.
