Let's be honest. No one likes being stuck in traffic. That’s why Cedar Park has several road improvement and construction projects. Our goal is to help improve your quality of life.
Some (but not all) of the various projects you will see on this page are voter-approved bond-funded projects. Many have been completed or are in progress. For more information on the 2015 Bond Election visit www.cedarparkbond.com.
TxDOT's RM 1431 "Gap" project
Construction to widen RM 1431 between Cottonwood Creek Trail and Market Street, known as the 1431 Gap Project, began in March. It will match the same six-lane design as the recently completed section between Sam Bass Road and Market Street.
TxDOT is managing all aspects of the design and construction of this project. Final asphalt paving and striping is underway and the project is expected to be complete in July 2019.
For the safety of workers as well as drivers and their passengers the speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles per hour for the duration of the project and will be enforced. To view the full ordinance authorizing the construction speed limit click here.

Town Center Pedestrian Bridge and Sidewalk
This project includes the construction of a pre-fabricated pedestrian bridge and 10-foot-wide concrete pathway. The project is located near the City of Cedar Park Recreation Center and along Spanish Oak Creek.
The bridge and sidewalk are open, but minor construction activities will be on-going while the construction wraps up.
Veterans Memorial Park Improvements
The Veterans Memorial Park Improvement Project is a Type B Community Development Corporation funded FY 2018 Capital Improvement Project consisting of adding sidewalks and stairs with handrails at the Veterans Memorial, renovating the existing play field and irrigation system, renovating the dog park and pond, as well as replacing drinking fountains, benches, doggie pots, and other miscellaneous items.
The construction areas including the pond are in the process of establishing new vegetation. Once an acceptable level of vegetation is growing, the park features can be opened for use.
Bell Boulevard Realignment Project
The Bell Boulevard (US 183) Realignment Project is proposed by the City of Cedar Park with the cooperation of the Texas Department of Transportation. The project would return the current Bell Boulevard (US 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 (US 183), running generally north and south. Bell Boulevard is proposed to be realigned and 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.
