MANOR - Open for just three months, the new Manor Expy. is already exceeding estimates for both traffic and revenue, according to the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA).

The CTRMA reports that within weeks of the May 17 grand opening, average weekly transactions reached nearly 47,000. The toll road originally was not expected to reach 41,000 transactions until 2015.

The Manor Expy. links east Travis County and southern Williamson County and the SH 130 Corridor to downtown Austin. The highway features six new tolled lanes, allowing for more capacity. It also improves capacity with six non-tolled frontage lanes.

CTRMA officials note that the success of the Manor Expy. has helped increase the overall average weekday transactions throughout the system to 170,000, more than twice the amount from this time two years ago.
