The City of Georgetown will host an open house meeting to provide information on the project to widen D.B. Wood Road from Hwy. 29 to Oak Ridge Road on Thursday, June 17. The open house meeting at 6 p.m. will be in the training room at the Public Safety Operations and Training Center, 3500 D.B. Wood Road. A short presentation about the project by City staff will be given at 6 p.m., followed by time for questions and answers.
The project that will enhance safety and connectivity will widen D.B. Wood Road from the existing two-lane road to four lanes with a center two-way left turn lane. A 10-foot wide shared-use path for pedestrians and bicycles along the west side of D.B. Wood Road also may be included in the project. This project was approved by the voters in the 2015 City transportation bond. Construction is expected to start in 2022 and be completed in 2024.
Another project to widen D.B. Wood Road from Oak Ridge Road to the Public Safety Operations and Training Center was approved in May by Georgetown voters as part of the 2021 Mobility Bond. Timing for this additional project has not yet been determined. City Council is actively working on a schedule for all 2021 Mobility Bond projects.
Exhibits showing the proposed improvements for the current project will be available for review at the open house. A brief presentation will be made during the open house and project team members will be available to answer questions.
All interested residents are encouraged to attend the open house and provide input on the project.
People can provide comments either verbally or written no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, June 24. Written comments may be emailed Joel Weaver, project manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to: ATTN: Joel Weaver, City of Georgetown, 300-1 Industrial Ave, Georgetown, TX, 78626.
