The 183 South Project utilized the “design/build” delivery method. This means a single company is responsible for both the final design and construction of the project. This approach helps expedite completion of the project by allowing the design/build firm to start some elements of construction while roadway design is still ongoing.
On May 27, 2015, the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority’s Board of Directors awarded its largest design/build contract to date to Colorado River Constructors (CRC) for $581.5 million. CRC is a team of design and engineering consultants led by Fluor Corporation and Balfour Beatty Construction.
Construction along the eight-mile stretch of US 183 began in April 2016, and is anticipated to be fully complete in 2022.
