AUSTIN - The Texas State Highway 130 (SH 130) will now stretch from Austin to Seguin after the 40-mile expansion of the toll road opens for traffic beginning October 24. The toll road, also known as Pickle Parkway, will allow drivers the speed limit of 85 mph — the fastest speed limit in the nation.
The existing toll road was initially built as an alternative to I-35 to alleviate more traffic congestion through Central Texas.
Construction for additions to the highway began three years ago. According to the transportation department’s website, the expansion project cost $1.35 billion and has been funded by private sector investments.
