290/130 Flyovers Project

290/130 Flyovers Project

Constructing flyovers at the interchange of the Mobility Authority’s 290 Toll and TxDOT’s SH 130 in east Austin to provide a safe and efficient link between the two facilities.

The Mobility Authority, in partnership with TxDOT, is constructing three flyovers at the convergence of 290 Toll and SH 130 to link the two facilities together. This will give drivers a safe, efficient, free-flowing direct connection between the two toll roads. The project will also benefit drivers who prefer the non-tolled option by freeing up capacity at the frontage road intersection.

The three flyovers will be designed and constructed by the Mobility Authority. TxDOT will finance the construction of the flyover between Eastbound 290 Toll and Southbound SH 130, which will be non-tolled. The Mobility Authority will finance the construction of the flyovers from Northbound and Southbound SH 130 to Westbound 290 Toll, which will be tolled connections, paid for by toll revenue bonds and a federal TIFIA loan.  A flyover already exists to link Eastbound 290 Toll to Northbound SH 130, which will remain non-tolled. All other movements will use the existing frontage road intersections.
