ROUND ROCK - The City of Round Rock will begin work on a $9 million extension of Creek Bend Blvd. in first quarter 2015, according to city officials. The project has been in the works for more than a decade.

The city’s plan includes a 3,100-foot extension from Creek Bend Blvd. to Wyoming Springs Dr. and Brightwater Blvd. To do that, an overpass will be built over Hairy Man Rd. and Brushy Creek, according to city documents.

The project will also include a raised median, a five-foot-wide sidewalk for pedestrians and a ten-foot-wide sidewalk to accommodate cyclists.

The goal is to provide a north/south arterial route as an alternative to I-35 on the city’s west side, Round Rock Transportation Director Gary Hudder said. The project should last approximately 18 months, according to Hudder.

The project costs $9 million because significant portions of the road will be elevated and because it will be a four-lane, divided arterial road, causing higher material costs.
