The 183 South Project is a key connection in the City of Austin between the downtown area and the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority will upgrade and widen 8 miles of highway corridor of existing US 183 between US 290 and SH 71 including adding three tolled lanes in each direction and improving the non-tolled general purpose lanes. New bicycle and pedestrian facilities will also be added along the updated corridor.

Results of the Pilot Project show normal progress scores for this stage of design, and make both Bronze and Silver Ratings tantatlizingly obtainable.
