Manor Expressway (290 Toll)
Following three years of construction, the Manor Expressway (290 Toll) opened to traffic on May 17th following a Grand Opening Celebration and Ribbon-cutting event. Watch the video highlights here.
The Manor Expressway project triples the previous capacity of US 290 East between US 183 and SH 130. It is a 6.2-mile limited-access road, including three tolled lanes in each direction and three non-tolled frontage lanes in each direction, plus a 10-foot-wide, 6-mile shared use path for pedestrians and bicycle travel and recreation.
The existing US 290 East was reconstructed with a wider footprint and remains non-tolled. The new Manor Expressway was constructed in the expanded median of US 290. Drivers who prefer not to use the Manor Expressway have the option of using the non-tolled frontage roads.The Manor Expressway links up with other important roadways in the region, including US 183 and the SH 130 toll road.
Lane Closures/Traveler Information:
Access to Decker Lane at US 290 will be changed beginning Tuesday, June 18, 2013. The intersection is being redesigned to accommodate the Manor Expressway, and traffic is being rerouted until Decker Lane can be realigned. In the meantime, motorists on Decker Lane who want to head west on US 290 will have to go east instead and use the turnaround at SH 130 to reach westbound US 290. Drivers heading west on US 290 who want to take Decker Lane will have to continue west and use the turnaround at Harris Branch and take US 290 eastbound back to Decker Lane. The detour will be in place until the Texas Department of Transportation realigns Decker Lane to intersect with the Manor Expressway at Harris Branch Road. That project is expected to break ground in fall of 2013 and will take approximately one year to complete.
Project History and Funding
The project was built in two phases. Federal stimulus funding was allocated to help complete Phase 1 of the project, a flyover interchange between US 183 and the Manor Expressway. As a result, the Mobility Authority prioritized construction of these interchanges, as well as right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation on a 1.5-mile stretch of the Manor Expressway between US 183 and Chimney Hill Blvd. to ensure the new flyovers could operate efficiently. Phase 1 opened to traffic in late 2012.
This first phase of the Manor Expressway was initially funded using a combination of the federal stimulus funding, a State Infrastructure Bank loan and a Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act loan.

Toll Collection and Toll Gantry Locations
Phase 1 of the Manor Expressway from US 183 to Springdale Rd. began opening in phases in December 2012. The Manor Expressway is a modern all-electronic toll road, meaning drivers don’t have to stop – or even slow down - to pay their tolls. Instead of traditional cash booths drivers can pay their tolls using a TxTag, EZ TAG or TollTag account or through a video based tolling program known as Pay By Mail.
