CTRMA remains committed to vague MoPac completion deadline

Thursday, December 1, 2016 by Caleb Pritchard

The MoPac Improvement Project is still on track to be completed sometime in the first half of 2017. That was the word on Wednesday from Steve Pustelnyk, director of community relations at the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. The broad time range reflects the level of caution the authority has adopted after multiple embarrassing delays on a project that was originally set to open in September 2015. This fall, the CTRMA opened up a section of the brand new northbound toll lane above FM 2222. Since then, Pustelnyk said, the lane has seen an average of 3,299 weekday transactions and an average toll rate of $0.53.
