The first section of the Southwest Bypass will open to traffic Wednesday morning.

The Southwest Bypass provides a north-south connection on the west side of Georgetown from D.B. Wood Road to Leander Road.

It's part of a larger project that will connect several more main roadways in Georgetown.

The entire roadway should be finished sometime late next year.

The ribbon cutting for the portion that was just completed was held at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
