Williamson County held a groundbreaking yesterday to begin construction on CR 200 from CMTA Railroad to CR 201, a distance of one mile, in Liberty Hill. The project includes reconstruction of CR 200 to a two-lane roadway with safety improvements including a center turn lane and wider shoulders.
“We are very excited that this project is starting construction. While this is not a huge project, it is critically important to improving safety for the city and county residents who live along it. This project will complement the improvements already completed by the county at CR 200 and SH 29,” said Precinct 2 Commissioner Cynthia Long.
The design engineer for the project is O'Brien Engineering Services, and MS Smith Contracting is the contractor. Construction is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2022 for a cost of $5 million funded with the voter-approved 2019 Road Bonds.
