Hays County leaders are asking residents for their input on a transportation plan designed to last for the next 25 years.
The second of four public open houses was held Tuesday in Dripping Springs. Residents are being asked to tell planners what is and what is not working with the current road system and how it might be improved.
The plan details the possible types of road expansion that may be necessary as the county's population continues to grow over the next two decades.
"I think the importance of this plan is based in the fact that through most calculations that have been judged as pretty accurate from the previous 10-20 years, the population projections, that we're going to be servicing at least twice the number of residents," Ray Whisenant, Hays County Commissioner, said.
The county will hold two more open houses this week, Wednesday in Kyle and Thursday in Wimberley. Comments are also accepted online.
Commissioners hope to approve the completed plan early next year.
