CTRMA Event Celebrates Two Major Construction Accomplishments

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority board held a virtual ribbon-cutting event yesterday to celebrate the recent opening of two facilities — the 183 Toll and 290/130 Flyovers. CTRMA’s $743 million US 183 South Project — the largest ever locally-led highway project in Central Texas — transformed a congested four-lane divided highway into “a modern expressway with three tolled and three non-tolled lanes in each direction. . . .” A TxDOT official yesterday called the flyovers project “a perfect example of the successful partnership between the Mobility Authority and TxDOT.” Bobby Jenkins, CTRMA’s board chair, said the new facilities “will help transform our regional transportation network, enhancing safety and connectivity for travelers. . . .”

KXAN filed a video report on the benefits to drivers of CTRMA’s work.
