The Southeast Corridor Study considers connections for east/west travel between SH 130 and SH 95 and north/south travel to US 79.
Williamson County began studying the Southeast Corridor in April 2017. Consulting firms have been hired to conduct public involvement, environmental studies, and preliminary engineering schematic design. To date, we have held three public meetings and gathered hundreds of comments and valuable feedback. Engineering solutions are under consideration and construction funding has not yet been identified.
The Southeast Corridor is one of several corridors that Williamson County is studying as part of the Long-Range Transportation Plan to enhance mobility in the County. The corridors under study were selected because these are areas in the County where more connection and mobility options are needed to safely and efficiently accommodate future growth.
This process began in April 2017 as two separate studies referred to as A1 (SH 130 and 3349) and E1 (Chandler Rd. to FM 1660). Public input indicated a desire to evaluate the two studies together and the limits have evolved to reflect the Southeast Corridor Study.
Southeast Corridor Study Process
The study involves several stages:
Present route alternatives and
collect input from public
Further refine and finalize route
Develop right of way preservation plan
Identify funding and develop phased construction plan
Collect input and route
suggestions from the public
Evaluate and refine routes
Present refined routes and collect public input
Detailed analysis and evaluation (environmental, fieldwork, coordination with property owners)
The process to study these corridors involves evaluating many factors including:
Social & Community Impacts
Land Use & Parkland
Archaeological & Historic Resources
& Land Cost
Threatened & Endangered Species
Vegetation & Wildlife
Materials and Documents
The A-1 and E-1 Corridors were originally studied separately, but because the corridors would connect and the study areas had some overlap, they are now being studied together as the Southeast Corridor. Below are materials shared at past public meetings.
