Mobility Authority Breaks Ground on 183A Phase III Project with Virtual Celebration
(Austin, Texas) — Today, the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) Board of Directors celebrated the start of construction on the 183A Phase III Project at the monthly Board of Directors meeting. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the groundbreaking event was held virtually in lieu of an in-person celebration.
The 183A Phase III Project will extend the 183A Toll Road 6.6-miles northward from Hero Way in Leander to north of SH 29 in Liberty Hill. The project includes two tolled lanes in each direction and an adjacent shared use path from Hero Way to Seward Junction Loop.
“It’s a crucial moment for the Mobility Authority and for our region,” said Bobby Jenkins, Chairman of the Mobility Authority Board of Directors. “This project will not only meet the capacity demands that projected growth is sure to bring, but it will also ensure long-term reliability and connectivity.”
The virtual groundbreaking was live streamed for the public to watch and is available to view online. The event highlighted the history of the 183A road, the project’s background, and included contributions by some of the key stakeholders and elected officials who have supported the project through its development.
“We are so excited about 183A Phase III getting going," said Williamson County Commissioner Cynthia Long. “Our economy and overall quality of life relies on the ability to travel to and from our communities.”
Project completion is expected in 2025. For more information about the 183A Phase III Project, visit www.183A.com.
