TxDOT Breaks Ground on RM 620 Roundabout Project - Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Construction is now underway on the RM 620 Roundabout project in Round Rock. The project will add overpasses at Chisholm Trail and Lake Creek Drive, a roundabout at RM 620 and Chisholm Trail beneath the new overpass, widened lanes, new frontage roads, and will improve bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

The Texas Department of Transportation was joined today by Congressman John Carter’s office, Williamson County Commissioner Terry Cook, Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan and members of the Round Rock High School Dragon Band at the groundbreaking. The project is a partnership between TxDOT, the City of Round Rock and Williamson County. The City of Round Rock and Williamson County funded development of the project. TxDOT is funding the $27.4 million construction.

Once the project is complete, the overpasses at Chisolm Trail and Lake Creek Drive will separate local traffic from through traffic, improving safety and mobility. RM 620 serves St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center as well as Round Rock High School and the Round Rock Independent School District headquarters. 

Construction of the improvements is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2022, weather permitting. The contractor for the project is Bridges and Roads, LLC. To learn more about the project, visit My35Construction.org
