TxDOT Lines Up $195 Million for TX 130 Expansion as CTRMA Readies Related $130 Million Project

Austin American-Statesman reports, “With traffic dwarfing original projections a decade after the tollway’s first sections opened, Texas 130 is on the way to getting bigger. . . . [TxDOT] has hired engineers to design an expansion from four to six lanes between Texas 130’s intersection with Texas 45 North in Pflugerville and Texas 71 near Austin’s airport.” TxDOT expects construction on the $195 million project to begin in 2018. The report also cites “a separate but related $130 million project by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority to add three flyover bridges at U.S. 290 and Texas 130 [which] should be complete by the end of 2020.”
