State Highway 29 to be Shut Down for Bridge Construction

Feb. 28, 2023
The project is adding 5.3 miles to the toll road

Texas drivers will see a new traffic pattern today as a part of Phase Three of the 183A Project

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) announced a new traffic shift, which will close part of SH 29 near US 183, will allow "excavation and construction of a new bridge."

The project will expand the 10-mile stretch of 183A by 5.3 miles north from Hero Way to north of SH 29. Once the project is completed, the road will have two tolled lanes in both directions, which will be located "primarily within the existing median of the US 183 corridor" in addition to an "adjacent shared use path from Hero Way to Seward Junction Loop," CTRMA said.

The closure of SH 29 will remain in place "indefinitely" until the first phase of the project is completed, according to the 183A Project's website.

In addition to the closure of SH 29, the northbound to southbound U-turn south of SH 29 and the pedestrian crosswalks at the intersection of SH 29 and US 183 will be closed. 

Drivers who want to use the U-turn are advised to use the turnarounds at Seward Junction Loop or north of SH 29 to access southbound US 183.
