Quick access to the airport, major highways, a mass transportation rail line, buses, bike routes and automotive transit provide for all of your businesses key transportation goals. TxDOT invested $760 million in the US 183 corridor to provide a clear flow of traffic traveling from downtown to the airport or west and north Austin. US 183 is the front door to all east Austin development. The US 183 corridor project upgraded the previous four-lane US 183 to include three tolled mainlanes and up to three non-tolled general-purpose lanes in each direction between US 290 and SH 71—tripling the roadway’s previous capacity. The 183 Toll Road, combined with other roadways, makes it possible for drivers to travel from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport through Leander without stopping. 183 Toll also provides a north-south alternative to I-35. This improvement provides a friendly mode-share for cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Based on the traffic count of Highway 183 from 2000 to 2016, the growth rate of this highway will be a maximum of 2%. Also, based on the population data from U.S. CB and City of Austin/Department of planning, the population growth rate will be 2% until 2045. The TECH 3443 site is strategically placed to provide movement and transit for its tenants.




Located along the US 183 corridor, a major vein in Austin, the TECH 3443 site entrances and exits are connected to the frontage road. This site is positioned to take advantage of access to the highway.

Construction began in 2015. The HWY 183 South corridor project, completed in March 2021, transformed the roadway into a non-stop, signal free route with both tolled and non-tolled general purpose lanes. These routes include new multi-model transportation options such as lanes for bicycles and pedestrians.



Our planners are designing pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle paths in concert with TECH 3443’s development area. The campus has designated slow speed zones to help enforce vehicle travel speeds of 20mph or less. The City of Austin and TECH 3443 are working to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, allowing the streets to be shared by all users. The campus may provide multiple levels of pedestrian infrastructure to accommodate for scale and need.

Infrastructure Plans Include:

  • Business walking distance
  • Residential walking area
  • Shopping & restaurant zone
  • Walking trail zone



The TECH 3443 property is beautifully positioned to make use of existing and planned bicycle infrastructure. The property is bounded to the east by the Southern Walnut Creek Trail and to the west by a shared-use path on the northbound side of the recently completed US 183 South corridor project. Austin has an excellent Bicycle Master Plan.

Implementation of the “all ages and abilities” network in the plan is well underway. The November 2016 transportation bond package ensured funding for large parts of the network to continue construction. TECH 3443 is connected to an extensive bicycle network that will become greater as it proceeds throughout the Master Plan.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Include:

  • Bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the Colorado River
  • Bicycle and pedestrian trailhead at the Colorado River
  • Pedestrian bridges crossing over US 183 corridors at Springdale Road, YMCA/East 51st Street and Bolm Road



TECH 3443 is connected to the future Green Line Commuter Rail, owned by Capital Metro. TECH 3443 envisions a Commuter Rail Station on the site for the Cap Metro Green Line. Phase One of the Green Line Commuter Rail will connect Downtown Austin with the City of Manor, a nearby city with affordable housing. Phase Two of the Green Line will go from Manor to Elgin where housing is even more affordable.

As part of Project Connect, Capital Metro is currently conducting an analysis of the Green Line project cost and timeline in preparation for taking it to voters, as required by Texas law. The affected communities, including the city of Manor, are part of Cap Metro’s service area and have expressed enthusiasm for the commuter rail line.
