DALLAS - Rapidly growing Williamson County, Tex., hired a public relations firm to help it gather opinions on a proposal to expand a heavily used road and to articulate plans for all road projects.

Eventually, officials want to widen State Highway 29, which runs east and west just south of Georgetown to 12 lanes from four. The county currently has numerous road projects underway using proceeds from a $228 million bond package approved in November 2006. At that time, voters also passed a $22 million proposition for park upgrades.
