1. SH 130 South project
Reconstruction of the 41-mile section of SH 130 between South Austin and northeast of San Antonio wrapped up in June. The project included removing 4 to 8 feet of material under the roadway and replacing it with treated material before crews repaved, according to the SH 130 Concession Co., which operates this portion of the tollway. The construction is separate from ongoing work on SH 130 that Texas Department of Transportation is undertaking between SH 71 and SH 45 N and flyovers being constructed by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority on the highway at Toll 290.
Timeline: fall 2017-June 2019
Cost: $90 million
Funding source: SH 130 Concession Co.

Cost: $10 million-$14.5 million
Funding sources: TBD
