The largest ongoing project in the area will add a three-lane tolled expressway and improvements to the nontolled lanes on each side of US 183 between Hwy. 290 and Hwy. 71. Crews are working to replace the northbound non-tolled lane bridge over the Colorado River Bridge and to complete the new toll lanes between Techni Center Drive and Hwy. 71, including new bridges over Boggy Creek. In the second half of the year, crews will work on bicycle and pedestrian improvements around the river, near Bolm Road at Boggy Creek.

South Lamar corridor improvements
Improvements on South Lamar Boulevard between Riverside Drive and Hwy. 290 are intended to reduce traffic, improve transit efficacy, and create continuous bike lanes and accessible sidewalks. Construction on the first phase, from Riverside Drive to Barton Springs Road, could begin in late 2020. Improvements will include upgraded traffic signals, pavement restoration and the addition of two-way bike lanes separated from vehicular traffic. Construction on additional segments of the corridor is anticipated in 2022, including intersections at Del Curto Road and Bluebonnet Lane, Mary Street and Evergreen Avenue and the Union Pacific Railroad pedestrian crossing east of Treadwell Street.
Cost: $34 million-$42 million
