Archer Western & Sundt to Construct 183 North Mobility Highway Project in Austin
AUSTIN, TX – Joint venture partners Archer Western Construction and Sundt Construction, Inc., operating together as Great Hills Constructors, were recently awarded the 183 North Mobility project in Austin, Texas. Archer Western and Sundt are responsible for the design and construction of the nine-mile highway project under the direction of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority).
The $477 million construction project adds two express lanes in both directions along a stretch of US Highway 183 from MoPac Expressway to State Highway (SH) 45 North in Travis and Williamson counties. Once completed, this important regional project will provide greater mobility on a crucial connection between the Liberty Hill area north of the corridor to downtown Austin. It includes adding a fourth general-purpose lane to bring the total number to four lanes in both directions and adds an express lane direct connector to and from southbound MoPac.
"We are excited to team with Sundt and bring our firms’ design-build expertise to the Austin market,” said David Casey, president of Archer Western’s Transportation Group. “The expansion of Highway 183 will bring added benefits to the traveling public, increasing mobility, reducing congestion and offering users additional connections.”
The project includes 21 bridge widenings, extensive retaining wall construction, operational improvements for the transition to MoPac, new shared-use path connections, sidewalks and cross-street connections for bicycles and pedestrians.
