Beginning as early as March 25, 2020,* the exit for westbound SH 71 from northbound US 183 will be closed for approximately one month. Drivers on northbound US 183 approaching SH 71 from the south will detour to eastbound SH 71, exit for Spirit of Texas Drive and utilize the U-turn, then merge left to stay on westbound SH 71. If drivers miss the exit for eastbound SH 71, they may utilize the U-turn at Montopolis Drive to head southbound on US 183, then exit for westbound SH 71.

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is building a new tolled expressway with three lanes in each direction on an eight-mile section of US 183 between US 290 and SH 71.

In addition, the Mobility Authority will be reconstructing and improving the non-tolled US 183 general purpose lanes and adding $25 million worth of pedestrian and bicyclist facilities. The project will open in phases between 2019 and 2020, offering greater mobility for all users of the corridor.
