AUSTIN, Texas — Editor's note: The video above is regarding the express lanes on MoPac.
After three years of work on an improvement project on one of Austin's busiest highways, the project is officially complete.
The $53.5 million project started in January 2018 and was completed in December 2020.
Here's what the project includes:
- Extension of the MoPac main lanes below existing street level
- Bridges constructed at La Crosse Avenue and Slaughter Lane
- Diverging diamond intersection at Slaughter Lane
In addition, a shared-use path was made along the MoPac Expressway within the project limits to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians.
The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday via Zoom.
