Corridor I-2
Location US 183 to SH 29 in Precinct 2
Description

The Corridor I-2 Planning and Right-of-Way (ROW) Preservation Study will consider connections for travel between US 183 and SH 29. As of January 2022, following the selection of a preferred alignment, community feedback, and analysis of additional data, the project team narrowed the footprint to 200 feet rather than the original 400 feet that were planned in 2020 (see press release). The study is intended to enhance safety and mobility in northwest Williamson County, while preparing for regional growth. 

The Corridor I-2 Study is part of the Williamson County Long-Range Transportation Plan, a conceptual plan that identifies future connections to ensure the County can maintain a high level of safety and mobility as growth occurs. The plan is regularly updated based on current needs, population projections and anticipated future mobility and safety needs. 

The study is being funded through the voter-approved 2019 Road Bond. Funding for ROW acquisition and construction was not included in the bond and will need to be identified before future phases of the project can move forward. Construction would happen when the need from growth occurs and as funding becomes available. If the projected population growth does not happen, then the roadway will not be built.

Status After meeting with a group of neighbors representing a larger community group and additional analysis of constraints such as impacts to homes and businesses, water resources, archaeological and historic landmarks and more, the County has developed a new preliminary alignment. The recommended alignment impacts 115 fewer properties and 37 fewer acres would be required for acquisition.

Next steps include meeting with potentially impacted property owners to discuss the study and gather feedback before establishing a final ROW footprint, which is expected this fall. Letters were mailed on May 26, 2022 to the potentially impacted property owners to invite them to meet with the project team during office hours. Once the property owner meetings are completed, the alignment options will be posted online. The County has contracted K Friese + Associates for this study.
