Drivers who use the 183-A toll road in Cedar Park and Leander will soon be able to drive just a bit faster.
Beginning in early August, the speed limit will increase from 70 mph to 75 mph, in response to a new state law that increases the maximum legal speed limit allowed in roads like 183-A. A speed study was conducted by TxDOT to determine the appropriate, safe speed limit for the roadway.
The 183-A toll road is an 11.6 mile expressway operated by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, stretching from RM 620/SH 45 in Northwest Austin through the cities of Cedar Park and Leander.
Drivers must continue to travel at the posted speed limit until the new signs are installed.
