A Williamson County project to make improvements to Hairy Man Road and Brushy Creek Road on the 2.2 miles of street between Brushy Bend and Sam Bass Road is now expected to be completed in December, according to the county.

Improvements to the road made by the county include the addition of shoulders on both sides of the street, rumble striping along the shoulders and turn lanes into the adjacent parks. These parks are Shirley McDonald Park, Creekside Park and Pool, and Olson Meadows Park.

Meetings with property owners affected by the project began in 2018, according to the county, and a presentation on the project was given at the Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District town hall in April 2019. The $3.9 million contract for the construction of the project was awarded to DeNucci Constructors LLC and work on the project began in February 2021. Funding for the project comes from the voter-approved 2013 Road Bond.

Community Impact Newspaper previously reported the city of Round Rock is in planning stages for a project to construct a connecting passage from Sam Bass Road to Wyoming Springs Drive to improve mobility in the area. This Wyoming Springs extension will also intersect with Hairy Man Road.
