Starting Aug. 1 and continuing throughout the month, Main Street at New Hope Drive in Cedar Park is closed.

Those turning onto or from Main from New Hope will be detoured to Enchanted Rock Drive.

The closure is due to the Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority making repairs to the pavement above a water line along New Hope between Bagdad Road and Discovery Boulevard, according to the city. The repairs will last through September.

During this time, there are lane closures along New Hope in the area.

To speed up the process to reopen this intersection, contractors will be working extended hours.

Workers are expected on the roadway Mondays through Saturdays from 7 a.m.-8 p.m.

The city is encouraging people who take this route to allow extra time during their commute and drive with caution through this area.


Bagdad Road Improvements

Williamson County is planning a project to reconstruct and realign Bagdad Road, also known as CR 279. The project adds a continuous center turn lane, a shared-use path and shoulders. Design is expected to be completed this summer, according to the county.

San Gabriel Parkway Phase 3

Phase 3 of the San Gabriel Parkway project will connect San Gabriel Parkway from Palmera Bluff to CR 270 in Leander. While the new road will eventually be a four-lane divided parkway, only the two southern-most lanes will be constructed at first. The city said once additional development moves into the area, the other two lanes will be constructed.

Timeline: 2024-25

Cost: $4.1 million
