Our system of roadway projects is designed to bring you faster, safer and more reliable drive times throughout Central Texas and reconnect communities, businesses and families. And we’re talking about all drivers; we are committed to providing a choice. Those who prefer the non-tolled frontage roads also enjoy an improved commute experience. Our sustainable mobility options give time back to residents so they have more opportunity to do and see the things they value and love.
