Rockdale is proud to announce upcoming Revitalization plans through our Highway 79 corridor. Beginning in the Fall of 2020, Texas Department of Transportation will begin work on a Highway 79 Improvement Project spanning from the 1100 block of West Cameron to the Highway 77 overpass. Over 16,000 vehicles per day travel through our city’s Highway 79 corridor.
The stretch of Highway 79 through the Historic Downtown District will also benefit from new sidewalks, improved parking, updated street lights and landscaping.
The City of Rockdale is also in the running for another grant which will partially fund a project which will revitalize our Main Street district with similar improvements.
