Round Rock City Council in November awarded a $2.39 million construction contract to G. Hyatt Construction Inc. to build six "parklets"—green spaces with trees, landscaping, lighting, tables and chairs—along East Main Street from Mays Street to Sheppard Street.
The project also includes repaving of three downtown streets, the installation of additional lighting features and creating new parking spaces. Road resurfacing is planned for the portion of East Main Street from Mays Street to Sheppard Street. In addition, crews will repave one block north and one block south of Main Street on Lampasas and Sheppard streets, per the release.
The first phase of the project is concentrated on constructing the three parklets located east of Lampasas Street on Main. Building the remaining parklets and laying new asphalt will follow over the coming months.
