Wheels in Motion to Begin Driving Progress on Transportation Improvements

ROUND ROCK, TX — In 2019, the City of Round Rock put in place funding strategies to accelerate transportation improvements over the next five years and beyond. The intent is to step up the pace of implementation of the $1.2-billion Transportation Master Plan approved in October 2017.

The City Council approved Roadway Impact Fees in March 2019, which will be paid by developers to cover some of the costs of expanding the transportation network necessitated by their projects. In April 2019, the city issued $30 million in certificates of obligation to begin work sooner rather than later on major roadway improvements such as widening Gattis School Road and University Boulevard.

The city has a target of investing a minimum of $240 million over the next five years to improve roadway capacity and connectivity in a program called Driving Progress. To reach that total, the city plans to issue additional COs over the next four years.
