The Manor Expressway is a Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority project. The Mobility Authority is an independent government agency created in 2002 to improve the transportation system in Williamson and Travis counties. Our mission is to implement innovative, multi-modal transportation solutions that reduce congestion and create transportation choices that enhance quality of life and economic vitality.
The Mobility Authority is overseen by a seven member volunteer board of directors. The Chairman of the Board is appointed by the Governor, and the remaining board members are appointed by their respective county commissioners in Travis and Williamson counties. The Mobility Authority board employs a small professional staff of 15 led by an executive director.
The Manor Expressway project is being supplemented by the knowledge and experience of over 40 firms and 500 people - just on the first phase alone. Over 2,200 people are expected to work on the Manor Expressway by the time it is completed.

The Mobility Authority works closely with its colleague agencies to help implement regional transportation plans and build and operate projects that meet Central Texans' transportation needs. You can find out more about our regional partners below.
The USDOT administers funding provided by the federal government for transportation projects in Texas and other states. The USDOT maintains oversight of federally funded transportation projects, but does not actually design, construct or operate any transportation facilities or systems.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) uses federal funds combined with state gas tax revenue and other funding sources to implement the statewide transportation program. TxDOT oversees more than 100,000 lane miles of state roads and is responsible for most major transportation projects in the state including operation and maintenance of the interstate highway system.
The Texas Turnpike Authority (TTA) is a division within TxDOT charged with implementing a statewide toll-based urban mobility program. TTA has developed an electronic toll collection device known as TxTag, which can be used on toll roads throughout the state. TTA has been closely involved in development of the Central Texas Turnpike System, which includes SH 130, SH 45 and Loop 1 and is responsible for the collection of tolls on these roadways.
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is a federally mandated regional planning agency responsible for studying transportation trends, identifying long-range transportation needs and creating short and long range transportation plans, which ensure the region implements transportation improvements in a coordinated manner within established funding limits. The agency’s Transportation Policy Board, comprised of state and local elected officials, both adopts the region’s long-range transportation plan and authorizes the construction of projects needed to implement that plan. This includes projects by many different agencies, including the Mobility Authority, the Texas Department of Transportation, the cities and counties, and Capital Metro and other transit providers.
Travis and Williamson counties and their cities are responsible for building and maintaining local roads including residential streets. Cities also have primary authority for regulating land use and development along transportation corridors. The Mobility Authority is working with local jurisdictions to ensure that new toll roads and lanes support economic development that is consistent with local growth management plans.
