From water to parks to transportation, multiple projects are underway in the city of Cedar Park. Staff provided City Council with an update on four of those ongoing projects during its June 13 meeting.

The four projects discussed during this quarterly update fall under drainage, transportation and facilities.

A closer look

The 2022 bond-funded public safety training facility is under design, which is projected to reach completion by this fall, according to the city’s website.

This facility is intended to provide a space for the police, fire and emergency management departments to practice various training activities. Randy Lueders, the city’s director of engineering and capital projects, said this project will include three buildings:
  • One to house the training facility as well as a large meeting room, two training rooms and an emergency operations center
  • One for a simulated training course and an instruction catwalk
  • One for an apparatus bay with an outdoor classroom
Lueders said the facility is anticipated to reach completion sometime in spring 2026.

Also of note

Work to help reduce localized flooding in sections 2 and 3 of the Ranchettes neighborhood is also progressing. Per the city's website, the project includes a series of drainage, utility and roadway improvements to multiple portions of the neighborhood.

The first phase of the project is under construction now and is expected to wrap up this fall. Lueders said the second phase is out to bid.

Funds for both phases are available through the city’s stormwater program.

Other projects

The other two projects included in the update were centered around transportation and mobility.

This summer, city leaders are focusing on rehabilitating and repaving several roads across Cedar Park through three similar projects:
  • Lakeline Boulevard Road Rehabilitation
  • Major Roads Resurfacing
  • Neighborhood Roads Resurfacing
The two road resurfacing projects involve stripping and replacing the top 1-2 inches of asphalt on each identified roadway, according to previous Community Impact reporting. Click here to see which roads were identified for resurfacing work in each project.

Lueders said both the major and neighborhood road resurfacing projects are nearing completion. Per the website, construction on both projects is scheduled to finish this summer.

The Lakeline Boulevard rehabilitation project includes select pavement improvements on various parts of the roadway. The improvements are aimed to address the damage on the roadway caused by Winter Storm Uri back in 2021.

Construction on Lakeline Boulevard is also anticipated to reach completion by the end of this summer, Lueders said.

He said all three of the projects are funded through the city’s 2022 bond program and are the second round of roads to be resurfaced since it was approved by voters.

Lastly, officials are replacing all existing crosswalks citywide with high-visibility crosswalks, which is a goal identified in the city’s Mobility Master Plan.

“These markings provide increased visibility by using wide stripes that run parallel to the curb and are visible from further away than traditional crosswalks,” Lueders said. “This can help drivers see pedestrians easier and yield to them more often.”

The first phase of implementation began last summer by upgrading crosswalks near schools, Lueders said. Planning for the second phase, which includes remaining locations, is underway and is expected to reach completion in spring 2025, per the website.
