Nearly $300 Million For Williamson County Roads Up For Vote

Updated: Wednesday, October 2 2013, 07:29 AM CDT

It's one of the fastest-growing counties in the country, and with more people moving there every single day, the roads in Williamson County keep clogging up. Now nearly $300 million could soon be on the way to fix them, but there's a catch: whether or not it makes it there is up to you.

In less than three weeks, voters will have their first chance to decide on a $315 million bond package, made up of two propositions. One contains $275 million for transportation. Possible projects include repairs along I-35, 1431, 620, Highway 29, and several others. The other $40 million would go toward parks and recreation, money that could possibly improve parks, build and extend hike and bike trails, and build an Expo Center in Taylor form an existing arena.

Your first chance to weigh in and hear more is Wednesday afternoon in Round Rock. Officials are holding an open house for Precinct 1 at the J.B. and Hallie Jester Williamson County Annex on 1801 E. Old Settlers Blvd. in Round Rock from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. They'll hold open houses for the other precincts in the coming week.

Monday, October 7, is the deadline to vote for the upcoming November 5 election.
