Construction is underway on Hwy 290 East to build the Manor Expressway, a 6.2-mile limited-access toll road with three lanes in each direction. The benefits to the Manor area will be a dramatic shortening of the drive time to Austin's central business district. See the above link for more information. Web Link.

SH 130

SH 130 was designed to improve mobility and relieve congestion on I-35 and other major transportation facilities within the Austin-San Antonio corridor.

SH 130 is a four-lane divided toll road that goes from Georgetown, north of Austin to Seguin, south of Austin, currently with major interchanges at I-35, U.S. 79, SH 45 North, U.S. 290 and SH 71. As traffic warrants and funding becomes available, SH 130 can be expanded to a six-lane facility. See the above link for more information.
