The C. Bud Stockton Loop Extension is part of Williamson County’s Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which aims to prepare for current and future growth by maintaining a high level of safety, mobility and quality of life for all Williamson County residents. The project was identified by the City of Jarrell as one of its priority projects for the 2019 Williamson County Road Bond.
The County has been working closely with the City of Jarrell to develop a plan that will extend C. Bud Stockton Loop by connecting FM 487/C. Bud Stockton to CR 305, ultimately extending the roadway to tie into CR 344. This project will construct two lanes of a future four-lane roadway with turn lanes. Right-of-way (ROW) preservation for the ultimate configuration between FM 487 and CR 344 is funded within the project. Design is currently underway and expected to be completed by summer 2021. Construction between FM 487 and CR 305 is expected to begin in late 2021, pending ROW acquisition and utility relocation. Construction of the segment north of CR 305 to CR 344 is not currently funded.
