I am thankful for the great partnership we have with Williamson County.”

The funds for the improvements are $1.1 million from Williamson County, $500,000 from the Texas Department of Transportation and $100,000 from the Liberty Hill Economic Development Corporation. O’Brien Engineering Services (now Jones/Carter) is the design engineer and Cox Commercial Construction is the contractor.
