Westinghouse Project
Williamson County broke ground for improvements on Westinghouse Road/CR 111 from FM 1460 to SH 130 and on CR 110 from north of CR 107 to CR 111 on Feb. 28.

The project will upgrade approximately 5.5 miles of existing roadways to widen roads with two travel lanes, shoulder improvements and turn lanes at intersections, according to a release from the county.

Improvements are also part of an ultimate six-lane divided urban roadway for the east-west transportation corridor of Westinghouse/CR 111, CR 110 and CR 105.

Construction of the project is funded through the voter-approved 2019 Williamson County road bond and the city of Georgetown at a total of $21,024,332.88. Georgetown will pay $7.1 million, or 34 percent of total construction costs.

Williamson County Commissioners Valerie Covey, Precinct 3, and Russ Boles, Precinct 4, helped spearhead the project, which was recognized in the Williamson County Long Range Transportation Plan originally adopted in 2009.


According to the Williamson County website, the plan is regularly updated based on current needs, population projections, and anticipated future mobility and safety needs.

The planning process to develop the plan involves working with the public, cities, neighboring counties, and transportation and planning agencies to gather input and coordinate connectivity and mobility.

The design engineer for the Westinghouse project is Steger Bizzell, and the contractor is Capital Excavation.

The project is expected to be completed in early 2024.
