The expansion along the northeastern corridor of Austin has meant opportunity for the city of Hutto, Texas, and an opportunity to find great homes at affordable prices for families in the metro Austin area. The overall growth of Williamson County and the increase of major employers from Georgetown to Austin settling in and around I-35 have encouraged the development of several new subdivisions around Hutto over the past few years. And, while some might be put off by having to travel on I-35 to commute into Austin, the development of the SH-130 toll road through both Williamson and Travis Counties offers plenty of alternate transportation options.
SH-130 is the largest highway contract in the history of Texas, and the $3.6 billion project includes the extension of Mopac and Toll Road 45, providing 49 miles of toll road that extends from IH-35 north of Georgetown south to U.S. 183 southeast of Austin.
