183A is an 11.6-mile toll road operated by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. It extends from northwest Austin through Cedar Park and Leander in northwest Williamson County.
The first section of 183A opened in March 2007. It included a limited-access expressway between RM 620 and New Hope Road and frontage roads from RM 1431 north to the South San Gabriel River. Initial traffic was much higher than originally projected, allowing the Mobility Authority to expedite a 5-mile extension of the expressway from New Hope Road north to San Gabriel Parkway. On April 6, 2012, the 183A Northern Extension opened to traffic.
US 183/183A Intersection Improvement Project
The Mobility Authority construction crews are making improvements at the intersection of US 183/183A in Leander. The project entails pavement widening, drainage improvements, signal adjustments, and minor new road construction of CR 276. It also includes access road reconstruction on the west side of the intersection and stub out connection for the future extension of a new road, Bryson Ridge Trail, on the east side of the intersection. The improvements will facilitate smoother and safer turning movements and will feature a more traditional design for improved access across the southbound lanes. This project is anticipated to be complete in the Fall of 2015. Motorists should be aware that the project will consist of day and night time lane closures during the construction period. The construction contractor will display changeable message signs near work sites which will show critical information about lane closures and detours.
