Williamson County Precinct 4 Commissioner Russ Boles was joined by U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions, State Representative Caroline Harris, Taylor Mayor Brandt Rydell, representatives from Samsung, and others recently to break ground on Samsung Highway Segment 2.
“In Williamson County, we are always planning to make sure we have the right roads in the right place to handle our growth,” said Boles. “I appreciate my fellow members of the Commissioners Court who have been supportive of projects in east Williamson County, but I also appreciate the people of Williamson County who have been supportive of these road projects. Not only do they bring health and safety to us, they bring many other opportunities to enhance our quality of life as well.”
This project, which is being completed in segments, will construct a four-lane road to reduce curves on CR 404 and increase safety. Once complete, the road will connect FM 3349 to FM 973, just south of the Samsung plant. Segment 1, already under construction, will connect FM 973 to CR 404, and will be completed in the fall of 2023. Segment 2 will connect CR 404 to FM 3349 and will be completed in summer 2024.
The $5.13 million construction cost for Segment 2 is being funded by the 2019 voter-approved Williamson County Road Bond Program.
