Williamson County and Travis County voters will decide on two bond elections for their respective counties Nov. 7.

On the ballot

Williamson County Commissioners Court called a nearly $900 million bond election. Proposition A in the package would fund $825 million in road projects. The funding would go to constructing, acquiring, maintaining, expanding and improving 38 road, bridge and state highway projects across the county. Click here for a full list of projects.

The $59 million parks bond includes but is not limited to the following county projects:
  • Trail extension from Cedar Park Lakeline Park to Twin Lakes Park
  • Regional Park trail extension south toward Brushy Creek Regional Trail
  • Trail extension from Berry Springs Park and Preserve north and west toward Georgetown Westside Park along Berry Creek
  • Trail extension south and east along Brushy Creek near Sam Bass Road
  • Williamson County Expo Center improvements, including cover on west arena with restrooms and showers
What else?

Travis County voters will weigh in on a half-billion-dollar bond aimed at improving roads and parks.

Proposition A includes $233.06 million in improvements to a slew of roads, many of which are in eastern Travis County. Every project includes adding or improving sidewalks, bike lanes or shared-use paths.

The county will also implement a "Safe2" Roadway Design to Bee Creek Road and Rowe Lane. Safe2 Design adds shoulders, sidewalks and center turn lanes to two-lane roads that don't have them. The county may also add water quality protections, flood mitigation and shade options.

In Proposition B, $276.4 million in funding would go to new trails, parks improvements, a new building at Arkansas Bend Park, and sports fields at Bee Creek Sports Complex and Southeast Metro Park. It would also fund land acquisition near the following areas:
  • Cow Creek
  • Gilleland Creek
  • Lake Travis
  • Onion Creek
  • Pedernales River
  • Post Oak Savannah and Springs
  • Wilbarger Creek
