City of Georgetown staff will present information at 6 p.m. June 17 regarding an $18.3 million safety and mobility project on D.B. Wood Road.
The project, approved by voters in the 2015 transportation bond, will widen the roadway from two lanes to four lanes with a two-way turn lane in the center. Construction will begin in 2022 and end in 2024.
The project is also adding a 10-foot-wide shared-use path on the west side of the road for pedestrians and bicycles. Project Manager Joel Weaver said the city's development standards require just one 10-foot-wide shared-use path so it is not guaranteed the other side of the road will also have one.
"However, on the other side of the road going through all these folks' properties, if they would like another shared-use path then we’re going to need donations [to fund it] right away," he said.
The open house will be held in person in the training room at the Public Safety Operations and Training Center, 3500 D.B. Wood Road.
Residents can also join online via Zoom at https://georgetowntx.zoom.us/j/94617134572. The webinar ID is 946 1713 4572. Individuals can also participate via these toll free numbers: 833-548-0276 or 833-548-0282. There will be time held for questions and answers after the presentation.
