The City of Georgetown’s Southwest Bypass and D.B. Wood Road extension project will create a 2.4-mile arterial that will extend D.B. Wood Road from University Avenue south to Leander Road. The project is one segment of the Southwest Bypass project to create a north-south arterial on the west side of Georgetown. The $18.3 million project broke ground in 2016 and is anticipated to be completed in 2018. The construction contractor is Jordan Foster Construction.
Williamson County will build a segment of Southwest Bypass from Leander Road to Interstate 35. Driveways were constructed in summer 2016 to allow engineering and design staff access to the property to complete permitting and construction plans. Williamson County officials broke ground Sept. 8 on the first phase of the project from I-35 to west of the Georgetown Railroad and will take approximately 12 months to complete. Phase 2 will connect Phase 1 to RM 2243/Leander Road and is anticipated to begin construction in Summer 2018. The road will be opened when Segment 2 is complete by early 2020.
