Several areas of US 183 and nearby frontage roads will see intermittent closures June 3-4 due to survey work being conducted by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority.

The work is related to design of the 183 North Mobility Project, according to Mobility Authority spokesperson Emily Gauci.

Impacted areas include:

• the northbound left lane between Great Hills Trail and Duval Road from 6:30 a.m to 3 p.m.


• the northbound left lane between McNeil Drive and Lakeline Drive from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

• the northbound frontage road right lane from Braker Lane to Balcones Woods Drive from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

• the northbound frontage road left lane from Balcones Woods Drive to Oak Knoll Drive from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

• the northbound frontage road left lane from Duval Road to Oak Knoll Drive from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

• the southbound right lane from Lake Creek Parkway to Anderson Mill Road from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. (ending June 3); and

• the entrance ramp at Lake Creek Parkway from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. (ending June 3).

The 183 North Mobility Project is designed to relieve traffic congestion along 9 miles of US 183 from MoPac to SH 45. The project will construct two tolled express lanes running north and south. Also, an added nontolled lane will be constructed in each direction, bringing the total number of nontolled lanes to four in each direction, according to information posted on the Mobility Authority website.

Great Hills Constructors is due to begin the four-year project in early 2022, according to the Mobility Authority.
