Round Rock moves forward with railroad crossings near Kalahari Resorts

Construction is underway on two railroad crossings near Palm Valley Boulevard in Round Rock. Work includes intersection improvements, signal upgrades, and the addition and extension of turn lanes at Harrell Parkway and Brushy Creek Plant Road.

Round Rock City Council formalized two agreements with Union Pacific Corp. on April 11. Transportation Director Gary Hudder described the agreements as necessary administrative steps and the projects as part of the city’s ongoing railroad quiet zone effort.

The railroad crossing at Brushy Creek Plant Road will be an extension and expansion of the current crossing, Hudder said.

The crossing at Harrell Parkway is a new construction. Harrell Parkway will serve as “a front door” to the Kalahari Resorts and Conventions site, Hudder said.

Kalahari will include 975 hotel rooms, five signature restaurants, an indoor family entertainment center, water park, convention center and spa. The development is expected to open November 2020.
