ROUND ROCK, Texas — On Thursday, the Round Rock City Council approved $30 million in street improvements.

The city will use bond money to pay for the construction work, funded in part by a small property tax increase.

Some of the projects include widening Gattis School Road and extending Kenny Fort Boulevard to State Highway 45.

Round Rock plans to spend $240 million over the next five years to make additional road improvements as the city looks for ways to deal with too much traffic.
