Construction Information & Travel Impacts*

Travel impacts for the weeks ahead include the following:

SAT 12/2 through SUN (12/3) 5 a.m. - 5 p.m. Pedernales Electric Cooperative will be performing work that requires rolling closures along 183A mainlanes and general-purpose lanes in the area north of Hero Way. Expect delays and use alternate routes.

MON (12/4) through FRI (12/8) 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. On southbound US 183, the left lane will be closed for several thousand feet north of Hero Way. Please use caution while driving.

MON (12/4) through FRI (12/8) 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. On northbound 183A frontage road, the u-turn at San Gabriel Parkway will be closed. Drivers may use the signalized intersection at San Gabriel Parkway to turn around.

MON (12/4) through FRI (12/8) 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. The u-turns at Bryson Ridge Trail will be closed. Drivers may use the signalized intersection at Bryson Ridge Trail to turn around.

MON (12/4) through WED (12/6) 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. On northbound US 183, the right turn lane onto SH 29 will be closed. Driver may continue to make the right turn movement at the intersection from the right lane.

Long-Term Travel Impacts & Major Activity

Ongoing, long-term travel impacts include the following:

Beginning FRI (11/3) The southbound to northbound u-turn at Hero Way will be closed for closed for an estimated 8 weeks. Drivers may continue to turnaround at the signalized intersection.

Tentatively scheduled for mid-December, SH 29 traffic at the intersection of US 183 will shift back to near original configuration. View map here. 

The southbound to northbound u-turn, as well as the temporary pavement north of the intersection that was used to accommodate the first phase of bridge construction, will close. Southbound US 183 traffic may use the signalized intersection to turnaround. All drivers should continue to use extra caution while traveling through the intersection. 

At project completion, the bridge will carry pedestrian movement and SH 29 traffic over the new 183A toll lanes.

Traffic along northbound US 183 has shifted permanently onto new lanes beginning south of CR 258. Two lanes of traffic have been maintained. New traffic signals at the intersection of US 183 and CR 258/CR 213 will cotninue to operate in a temporary flash setting. Drivers on US 183 should be prepared to yield to crossing traffic. View a map here.

The northbound to southbound U-turn south of SH 29 is closed. Drivers are advised to use either turnarounds at Seward Junction Loop or north of SH 29 to access southbound US 183.

The pedestrian crosswalks at the intersection of SH 29 and US 183 are closed. The Project includes pedestrian improvements at this intersection such as the addition of sidewalks and upgraded signalized crossings. View a map here.


*Please note:

  • All closures are subject to change based on weather and other circumstances. 
  • These closures are required for construction of the 183A Phase III Project. The traveling public may experience additional closures along the corridor as a result of other neighboring construction projects and are not associated with the 183A Phase III Project.


What to Expect during Project Construction

Construction activity will occur throughout the entire corridor simultaneously until completion of the project, anticipated in early 2025.

Construction will take place primarily within the existing US 183 median and right-of-way, minimizing impacts to the traveling public. However, the community should remain prepared for:

  • Travel delays
  • Lane shifts, closures and detours
  • An increase in noise, vibration, dust and lighting, including during night work
  • The use of trucks and heavy machinery

While construction is an inherently disruptive process, we make every effort to minimize the impacts as much as possible. Mitigation measures on the 183A Phase III Project include:

  • Regular use of water trucks to reduce dust
  • Weekly roadway sweeping to reduce debris
  • Directing construction lights away from residential areas
  • Financial penalties for the contractor if a closure occurs or lingers outside of approved time frames

We do our best to communicate traffic impacts to the public in advance of work through weekly email notices, twitter, and other direct channels. However, shifts in scheduled activities do occur so project traffic impacts are kept up to date on this page.

Reminder: The corridor is an active construction zone. Please do not park or walk within the median or along the sides of the roadway, including the area around the San Gabriel River. Thank you for your cooperation.

View our 183A Phase III Construction Guide for more information on what to expect during construction. For any questions or concerns about construction activities, please reach out to the Project Team directly through our contact form or by phone at (512) 340-1111.

We thank you for your patience as we work as quickly and as safely as possible.
