Mobility Authority, TxDOT break ground on $743 million 183 South project

183 South Project

183 South Project

Upon completion in 2020, the 183 South project will quadruple the capacity to drivers east of downtown Austin and open access regionally to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Construction will begin in May on the $743 million project, which will include building three tolled lanes in each direction on US 183 between Hwy. 290 and SH 71 and also include three nontolled lanes in each direction with bike lanes and a shared-use path.

The first phase of the project between Hwy. 290 and Techni Center DriveĀ is anticipated to be finished in 2019 with full completion of the project in 2020.

The bridge will be decommissioned to vehicular traffic, and converted for use by bicyclists and pedestrians.

About $25 million will be invested in bike/ped improvements, which also include a seven-mile shared-use path on the northbound side of US 183, nine miles of sidewalks and 16 miles of bike lanes on both sides of the corridor. A new pedestrian bridge will be built near Manor and Springdale roads.
