||Bridge replacement over Brushy Creek on Great Oaks Drive. This project also will improve the intersection of Great Oaks Drive and Brushy Creek Road / Hairy Man Road. Improvements will include intersection improvements, removal of the existing bridge, a new 4-lane bridge, dedicated left turn lanes in all directions, dedicated right turn lanes for traffic moving northbound to eastbound and eastbound to southbound, and shared thru-right lanes for traffic moving westbound to northbound and southbound to westbound. This project will include additional parking and will also modify the trail to provide a safe passageway under the roadway.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2020 later in the year. Waterline relocations are underway and are anticipated to be completed this spring. The bridge project is anticipated to be completed late 2021.
Starting Tuesday, February 25, the Williamson County Parks & Recreation Department will be closing a portion of the Brushy Creek Regional Trail at Great Oaks Drive for the utility relocation project. Water lines for Brushy Creek MUD and Fern Bluff MUD are being relocated prior to the start of the Great Oaks Drive bridge replacement over Brushy Creek. For safety in and around the construction area, the Brushy Creek Regional Trail will be closed at the boardwalk at Creekside Park to just east of the Great Oaks Drive and Hairy Man Road intersection. In addition, sidewalks in the construction area will be closed (see map). The work will take approximately two months, weather permitting. Following the relocation of the water lines, Williamson County will begin work on replacing the Great Oaks Drive bridge over Brushy Creek later in the year.
