MoPac Express Lane North Is Now Open
The MoPac Express Lane North is now open from Ranch To Market 2222, South, to Parmer Lane, North. The South bound side of the express lanes are expected to be open by the end of November.
The MoPac Express Lane will give drivers the option to bypass congestion on the 11-mile stretch of MoPac between Parmer Lane and Cesar Chavez Street and get to their destination without delay. MoPac is one of Austin's most important arteries, serving as a key route to downtown and points beyond. As a primary alternative to Interstate 35, MoPac carries more than 180,000 cars and trucks each day. By 2030, MoPac is projected to serve more than 320,000 cars a day. Phase I (north of 2222 to Parmer) is currently open to traffic.
The $200 million dollar project has been slow coming to fruition but is welcomed by both those that use it and those that benefit from those that use it. The impact is already being felt on the North bound side of MoPac.
