From 183A to Southwest Bypass (expressway section)

  • Three travel lanes in each direction with outside lanes operating as auxiliary lanes
  • Frontage roads consisting of three travel lanes in each direction
  • New connection to 183A
  • Median barrier separating east and westbound mainlane traffic

From Southwest Bypass to I-35 (four-lane urban divided roadway)

  • Raised median
  • Turn lanes at various locations
  • Continuous bike/pedestrian path from 183A to I-35

The open house will allow the public the opportunity to review and comment on the corridor study. Displays will be available for review, and staff will be present to answer questions. No formal presentation will be given, and attendees are invited to come and go at their convenience.
