AUSTIN (KXAN) — As work continues on the rest of the North MoPac toll lanes, drivers will need to get familiar with some small lane changes this week.
Starting this week, crews will realign the southbound lanes just south of Enfield Road. The new MoPac lanes will pass over a newly constructed Express Lane underpass/exit to downtown Austin. After crossing over the underpass, drivers will be able to exit at a new Cesar Chavez/5th Street exit. The current temporary Cesar Chavez/5th Street exit will be closed.
Anyone wishing to continue south on MoPac should stay in the center or left lane, which is the current lane setup. Drivers going southbound who want to exit to Cesar Chavez/5th Street will remain in the right lane—the exit is just a little further south.
The entire Express Improvement Project is expected to be completed by spring 2017. The first section of the toll lanes opened in October.
