Wolf Ranch Parkway and Memorial Drive improvements
The Wolf Ranch Parkway project includes widening the roadway from Hwy. 29 to Rivery Boulevard to four lanes with a center median and adding a shared-use path. The City will install a roundabout at Memorial Drive and two traffic signals—at Rivery Driveway and Legacy Crossing—as part of the project. Temporary traffic signals will be installed prior to the project’s completion. The City will not need to acquire rights of way from the surrounding neighborhood.
The Memorial Drive project includes widening the roadway from River Chase to Wolf Ranch Parkway and adding a sidewalk on the south side of the road.
Expanding Memorial Drive and constructing the roundabout are estimated at $3.4 million. Cost estimates for the remaining work are still being determined. Funding for the projects will be split among the Council’s Special Revenue Fund, the street maintenance quarter-cent sales tax, and potentially Georgetown Transportation Enhancement Corporation. Timelines for construction are still being finalized.
The City of Georgetown held a public open house Jan. 16, 2024, to provide information and answer questions about the Wolf Ranch Parkway and Memorial Drive projects.
Design engineers have completed 30-percent design plans for the Wolf Ranch Parkway and Memorial Drive projects and will have schematic design illustrations for the project for review and feedback at the open house. Schematic designs include vehicle lane configurations and other features such as sidewalks, multi-use paths, and drainageways.
All public comments that were submitted on the project will be reviewed and considered in the final designs.
