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 tripled 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.

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.

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.
Total Project Cost: $426 million
