The MoPac Improvement Project is now more than 1/3 of the way through, but there still remains quite a bit of work to do.

The construction began on Mopac towards the end of 2013 and will add 11 miles of toll lanes from MoPac to Parmer Lane to Cesar Chavez Street. Currently 45th Street to Farm-to-Market 2222, and Enfield Road are being worked on.

The sound walls, however, won’t go up until 2016 although the main improvements will still happen by fall of 2015.
