About the Lakeline Boulevard Rehabilitation Project
In February 2021, ice from Winter Storm Uri badly damaged the section of Lakeline Boulevard between Continental Pass and Cedar Hills Boulevard. Required repairs are beyond what can be accomplished through asphalt overlay, requiring a depth of 16 inches of existing pavement, road base and subgrade to be removed and reconstructed. This project was recommended by the 2021 Bond Advisory Task Force and funded by the 2022 voter-approved General Obligation Bond Program.
The 2023 Lakeline Boulevard Rehabilitation Project has started. Commuters who use this part of Lakeline Boulevard, between Continental Pass and Cedar Hills Boulevard (north of West New Hope Drive), should expect delays and may want to choose an alternate route. All drivers are asked to please drive safely through this construction zone and obey all posted signage and traffic control devices, as crews will be working Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 6 pm.
During the project, there will be only one lane of traffic, each way, on what is now the northbound side to allow the contractor to fully reconstruct the southbound lanes. Once complete, the two travel lanes (one in each direction) will shift to a new roadway. This will allow the contractor to reconstruct the northbound lanes fully. Once construction is complete, this section of Lakeline Boulevard will return to a four-lane divided roadway.
The contractor is Texas Road, LLC., chosen by competitive sealed proposal delivery, which allowed the City of Cedar Park to select the offeror who presented the greatest overall value to the City. Based on the results of the grading process, City staff found that Texas Road ranked highest among the two proposing contractors. The contracted amount is $1.95 million and the project duration is 90 days.
Contractors are hard at work on the Anderson Mill Phase II Road Project, tying in intersections and installing new curbs, ramps and drainage. As part of it, they’ll be shifting traffic to one side of the following roads that intersect with the northbound side of Anderson Mill Road. This part of the Anderson Mill Road Phase II Road Project was delayed due to rain, but weather-pending. Work will progress along the northbound side of Anderson Mill Road and then the roads that intersect with the southbound side of Anderson Mill Road. The affected streets are listed below:
- Drifting Leaf
- Grand Falls
- Shady Creek*
- Zeppelin - starts week of June 5, and includes crosswalk ramp construction
*Shady Creek and Rhapsody will have flaggers stationed there to help provide safe passage during daytime construction. Traffic may be placed on a gravel surface overnight for about one week until work is completed. All other roads are wide enough to still allow for two-way traffic.
- Grand Falls
- Passion Flower Pass
- Quiet Moon
- Cypress Creek

Anderson Mill Road Traffic Pattern Change
Anderson Mill Road Traffic Pattern Change Body: Traffic will be intermittently shifted to the newly constructed outside lanes of Anderson Mill Road from Cypress Creek Road to Zeppelin Drive starting on 9/18/23. Cross-street traffic should be aware Anderson Mill Road traffic will be closer to the outside and should be prepared to stop earlier. Please follow the signs.
Asphalt on the following roads is being milled for resurfacing:
Scope of project/project details:
- The scope of work in this project consists of removing existing asphalt along the width of these arterial streets, then placing a two-inch layer of new asphalt over the full width of the street.
- Performing street resurfacing on major roads when the pavement condition is still satisfactory extends the service life, improves safety and mobility for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians and enhances the visual appearance of roadways.
- This project is located on:
- Vista Ridge Boulevard: Whitestone Boulevard to Brushy Creek Road
- East Park Street: Bell Boulevard to 183A
- Blue Ridge Parkway: Bryce Canyon Drive to Brushy Creek Road
- The project is funded through the 2022 Bond Program. There will be a second phase of projects programmed for 2024 as part of the 2022 Bond Program
- Lone Star Paving is the contractor
- Construction will take about 120 days (about 4 months)
The Bell Boulevard Realignment Project will return the current Bell Boulevard (U.S. 183) roadway east onto the full extent of Old Highway 183, from Cypress Creek Road to Cedar Park Drive in Cedar Park. Currently, Old Highway 183 is a two-lane roadway parallel to Bell Boulevard (U.S. 183), running generally north and south. Bell Boulevard is proposed to be realigned, relocated to the Old Highway 183 alignment, and reconstructed to a four-lane divided roadway that includes a raised median with turn lanes at intersections and driveways.
- The City began talking to the community about the potential Bell Boulevard Realignment during the Bell Boulevard Redevelopment Master Planning process, which took place from 2014 to 2015
- Funding for the road realignment was authorized by voters as part of the Streets and Roads bonds in the 2015 General Obligation Bond election;
- Design from the City is complete for Bell Boulevard (U.S. 183) from Buttercup Creek Boulevard/Old Highway183/Brushy Creek Road to Park Street
- The utility undergrounding construction in January 2020 was completed during the summer of 2020
- Road construction began in September 2020
- In December 2021, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) marked the project substantially complete and released this section of highway to the City
- Paving and striping are complete. The contractor is working on a final list of items.
2015 Cedar Park Road Bond Funds (phase 1 road realignment).
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the City used a street resurfacing material in many older neighborhoods that has since deteriorated and needs to be replaced. Performing street resurfacing on these neighborhood roads extends the service life, improves safety and mobility for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians and enhances the visual appearance of roadways.
- 2022 Voter-approved Bond Funded transportation project
- Construction will take approximately 130 days (4.5 months)
- Construction consists of removing existing asphalt along edge of residential streets and placing new layer of asphalt over full width of street
- Lone Star Paving will be completing the construction
First Phase (Started on 7/17/2023)
The project includes streets within the Carriage Hills, Crossing at Carriage Hills, Woods at Carriage Hills, Cedar Park One, Silverstone, Gann Ranch Section One, and Buttercup Creek subdivisions.
- Used the results of a City wide Pavement Condition Index study conducted last year to determine which streets needed initial treatments
- Evaluated proximity to other construction projects planned this summer (i.e. major road resurfacing)
- Considered the proximity to schools to ensure work around the schools can be done during summer break
- It is beneficial to do as many of these in the same area as possible to reduce mobilization and impact during construction
- Construction began in October 2022 on New Hope Drive from Ronald Reagan Boulevard to Sam Bass Road
- Designed and constructed as 4-lane divided roadway with a/an:
- Raised median
- Curb and gutter
- Enclosed storm sewer system
- Shared use path
- Bike lanes
- Design included all major project components such as:
- Utility coordination
- Geotechnical and construction materials testing services
- Right-of-way acquisition services
- Environmental assessment
- Right-of-way appraisals
- Public involvement
- Construction phase services
- Estimated completion: spring 2024
- Estimated construction cost: $22 million funded by voter-approved General Obligation bond funds, utility funds for the utility portion and Williamson County transportation funds provided by Williamson County in 2020
Roadway improvements - New Hope Drive to Bagdad Road
- Funding for this project was allocated from the 2015 Bond Program
- Funded for design and right-of-way acquisition only
- Design started mid-April 2022 and is expected to be complete summer 2024
- This project design will widen RM 1431 (Whitestone Boulevard) to a 6-lane major arterial roadway including:
- Raised medians

This is not a new black surface. This is a clear application with sand so for a few weeks the surface will look brown and then the grey asphalt color returns once the product has done it’s job.
- Extends life of asphalt
- Seals minor cracking
- Annual program – various streets each year
- Application lasts 4-6 years
- This costs $1.25/sq. yd. vs. asphalt mill-and-overlay, which costs $10/sq. yd.
