It is expected to be the first project to fully open with managed lanes in the area.

The $1.02-billion, 8.4-mi project uses $250 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding. It will affect areas around IH-635 and SH 114, 121 and 360. Construction is scheduled to be complete in 2014. As a design-build project, the project can be completed in less than five years. Plans call for an ultimate 14.4-mi, $1.6-billion project. Funds for the remaining phases have not been identified.

At the widest point along SH 114, the highway corridor will be 24-lanes wide.
