AUSTIN -- Drivers will get their first chance to drive on the new Manor Expressway.
The first section of the new toll road in Northeast Austin will open Friday night. The eastbound lanes from U.S. 183 to east of Springdale Road will open after rush hour.
The new road will run parallel to U.S. 290, east of 183. The rest of the flyover ramps will open in phases during the first week of December. Westbound lanes will open later next month.
Drivers can travel toll free throughout December. Tolling begins in January.
