The completed roadway will have six tolled main lanes and four to six non-tolled general purpose lanes (two to three in each direction). The 183 South Project will also add capacity to one of Austin's most important arterial roadways, which serves more than 60,000 vehicles a day.
The 183 South Project is the region's largest roadway construction project by the Central Texas Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority). The Fluor and Balfour Beatty team previously completed the 49-mile long State Highway 130, Segments 1-4, just east of Austin.
The Fluor-led Lone Star Infrastructure consortium completed this first ever TxDOT design-build tollway project in 2008, which has provided much needed mobility to Central Texas. The 183 South Project signifies a major step forward in continuing a comprehensive regional transportation system that offers greater mobility, reliable travel times and improved access to affordable housing.
