Bergstrom Express Lanes

Welcome to the Bergstrom Expressway Website

The US 183 South corridor from US 290 to SH 71 has long been identified as a heavily congested corridor in need of solutions. Since 2011, the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority and the Texas Department of Transportation have worked with agencies and the community to develop a reasonable and feasible approach to improve mobility in the corridor. With final design and construction soon to be underway, mobility improvements to US 183 are one step closer to being a reality. 

The 183 SOUTH PROJECT will include:

  • Three new toll lanes and three improved non-tolled general purpose lanes in each direction
  • New bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and shared use paths for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Landscaping and aesthetics improvements along the corridor
