Agencies seek input on extension of Kenney Fort Boulevard

City, County, TxDOT partner to close gap between SH 45, Forest Creek Drive

The City of Round Rock, in partnership with Williamson County and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), is developing a project to construct Segments 2 and 3 of Kenney Fort Boulevard (KFB). The proposed project would eliminate an existing gap in the City’s transportation network between Forest Creek Drive and SH 45 while enhancing mobility and providing an additional route for north/south traffic in this rapidly growing area of the City.

A virtual public hearing for the proposed project will held from 10 a.m., Thursday, Dec. 3, through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18. The public hearing and a comment form can be accessed here.

The public hearing will include a pre-recorded video presentation with both audio and visual components. Additional materials, including a written transcript of the presentation, exhibits and supporting documents such as environmental reports will also be available.

The public will be invited to give input on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted using any of the following methods:

  • By email to: KenneyFortBlvd@gmail.com
  • Verbally by calling 512-815-3240 and leaving a voice message
  • By mail to: Attn: Stacey Benningfield, 13809 Research Boulevard, Suite 300, Austin,TX 78750

Comments must be received by Friday, Dec. 18, to be included in the official record of this public hearing.

Additionally, the City of Round Rock, in partnership with Williamson County and TxDOT, is providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in-person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the virtual public hearing, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of City of Round Rock staff and/or consultants from a socially distanced approach, and leave written comments.

The in-person option will be held from from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2, at the Round Rock Transportation Department Training Room, 3400 Sunrise Road.

Attendance at the in-person option will be by appointment only. Individuals wishing to attend the in-person option must call 512-349-0700 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to make an appointment. In recognition of COVID-19, enhanced safety measures will be applied at the in-person option, including a requirement to wear a face mask, have an appointment, and follow social distancing practices. If anyone arrives without an appointment, they may be asked to wait outside to ensure we maintain appropriate occupancy within the meeting room.

As an alternative to accessing virtual public hearing materials online, members of the public may call project staff at 512-349-0700 during regular office hours or email sbenningfield@cpyi.com to ask questions about the project or access project materials. The public is welcome to ask questions about the project at any time during the project development process.
