Road construction will not affect regular traffic on Bell. The realignment is scheduled to be complete in late 2021.
This project relocates the part of Bell between Buttercup Creek Boulevard and Cedar Park Drive to the alignment of Old US 183. The new road will be a four-lane divided roadway. Substantial utilities relocation is nearing completion, and some building demolition has begun.
Road realignment is critical for the Bell Boulevard Redevelopment Project, which will develop the area into a mixed-use development. The redevelopment project remains on schedule, according to the city.
The city opened bids for the construction project July 16, and Cedar Park City Council is scheduled to take a vote in August.
