East Wilco Highway / Corridor E

Location: Four, north-south segments starting at I-35 north of Jarrell and ending at U.S. 79.

Description: The county is conducting the Corridor E Planning and ROW Preservation Study as part of a planned ultimate controlled-access roadway in the central part of the county as an alternative north/south transportation corridor to IH35. This study is made up of four segments that are a part of the county's Long-Range Transportation Plan. All four segment studies were funded via the voter-approved 2019 Road Bond; however, there is no right-of-way or construction funding identified for any of the segments at this time. This study will serve as an important planning step to accommodate current and anticipated traffic levels to provide reliable transportation as the county continues to grow. By planning ahead, the County can best coordinate with property owners, businesses, and the community.
