In November 2008, Hays County voters approved a proposition to issue $207 million in Hays County road bonds for roadway safety and mobility improvements across the county.

Two categories of projects will be funded through the bond issue:

  1. Projects eligible for Pass-Through Financing reimbursement from the State of Texas (Texas Department of Transportation), which will reimburse up to $133 million through the TxDOT Pass-Through Funding Program
  2. Other priority projects which were identified as particularly important locally through input from local entities (municipal governments, school districts) and through a public participation process conducted in July 2008

In addition to the $207 million in taxpayer-financed road bonds, the Hays County road projects approved by voters will be funded with at least $11 million from the City of Kyle, $7 million from the City of San Marcos and $3 million from federal grants.
