Round Rock straddles the fault line known as the Balcones Escarpment, which marks the transition between the flat, fertile prairie to the east of town and the karst-like hills to the west. The combination of the striking terrain, proximity to Austin and a diverse economic base has made Round Rock one of the fastest-growing towns in the nation. With new homes being built, new businesses moving in and new thoroughfares to be constructed, Round Rock needs an experienced, trustworthy paving company to install and maintain its new pavements. Alpha Paving can help, providing a wide range of services that include asphalt paving and overlays, sealcoating, parking lot striping, asphalt repairs, road construction, concrete services, pavement markings and asphalt milling.
Round Rock, TX – The History
Although evidence of human habitation has been found that dates to at least 9000 B.C., the first European settlers did not arrive until 1851. The community was established near a creek with a large, flat round rock in its center. The waterway was named Brushy Creek, and the community’s first postmaster named the settlement Brushy. The rock marked a low-water crossing; in 1854, the community was renamed due in part to the spreading fame of this landmark. When the Chisholm Trail was routed through the area, it crossed the creek at the spot marked by the already well-known rock.
Cotton was the county’s money crop from the time that Round Rock was founded through the middle of the 20th century. However, Round Rock did not experience substantial growth during this period; nearby Taylor had the train depot and the cotton gins. As the county’s economic powerhouse during the 1950s, the original plans for Interstate 35 routed this new type of highway through Taylor. Routing plans were changed after opposition from the leaders and many citizens of Taylor and lobbying by the leaders of Round Rock to bring the interstate through their town. The interstate brought opportunities to develop the economy of Round Rock, and by the late 1990s, Round Rock had attracted some major employers, including Dell. As of 2016, the population of Round Rock is estimated to be almost 123,000; for comparison, the population in 1970 was scarcely more than 2,800.

• Concrete Services: Under certain conditions, concrete may be the preferred paving choice for parking lots, sidewalks, curbs, ADA-compliant ramps and residential drives. Learn more about Concrete Services
• Pavement Repairs: Professional, timely repairs can greatly extend the life of your pavement. Crack filling is one of the most economical ways to ensure a pavement’s longevity; cracks allow water penetration, which can destroy the supporting foundation and result in expensive repairs or even the failure of the entire pavement. Pothole repair is another common request. Learn more about Asphalt Crack Repair
• Sealcoating: Professionally maintained sealants can double the life of asphalt pavement. Sealcoating helps protect against automotive fluids, chemicals and UV rays, all of which can lead to pavement deterioration. As a bonus, sealcoating also restores the color of faded asphalt pavement.
