City opens Intermodal Transit and Parking Facility in southwest downtown

The City of Round Rock celebrated the completion of its Intermodal Transit and Parking Facility at 300 W. Bagdad Ave. Tuesday, March 8, with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. 

The 56,661 square-foot, two-story facility includes 110 parking spaces, a bus loading/unloading area, a transit pavilion, bike racks, lockers and pedestrian amenities.

The facility will serve as the City's public transportation hub and as the beginning and ending points for one of the Peak Hour Express Bus Service routes, which will run during peak morning and evening hours Monday through Friday.

The City plans to start express bus service during the spring of 2011. Additional information about schedules and routes will be released to the public in the coming months.

The facility will provide a safe connection for pedestrians, bicyclists, automobiles and transit vehicles as well as provide public parking for visitors to southwest downtown Round Rock. The facility is located across the street from the Allen R. Baca Senior and Community Activities Center and the McConico Building which houses other municipal offices.  

Funding for the facility was provided from 2002 City of Round Rock General Obligation Bonds, the U.S. Department of Transportation through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users.

Total project costs with land acquisition were $5,092,900.

The architect for the project was Barnes Gromatzky Kosarek Architects. The construction contractor was Flintco, Inc.
