Round Rock roadways are covered by a sheet of ice, which makes for treacherous road conditions, the city announced Feb. 19. Highways, bridges and overpasses in particular have been noted as dangerous driving locations.

Throughout the city, some intersection signals will be offline due to power outages. Drivers are asked to treat the intersections as four-way stops and proceed carefully, per the announcement.

Police offers are responding to several car accidents and wrecks throughout the city, per the announcement. The city has requested that drivers stay home and off the roads except in the case of an absolute emergency.


  • Traffic updates:

    • Old Settlers Boulevard overpass over I-35 is closed.

    • Northbound I-35 at McNeil Road has reopened after a wreck involving "a jackknifed 18-wheeler" was cleared from the roadway.




Additional city road updates will be posted here.


The Texas Department of Transportation's DriveTexas.org website also reported ice and snow on SH 130 and that travel is discouraged because of black ice as well as ice and snow on bridges and overpasses.
