Two Lanes Closed on Southbound Mopac between 183 and Steck

I saw mention of this earlier, but ignored it because I assumed it was too far north to worry about it. It’s a bit of a big deal though.

The two outside southbound lanes of Mopac between 183 and Steck are closed due to collapse from all of the rain we’ve had over the last couple of weeks. If I read the News8Austin story correctly, they’ll be closed at least until early tomorrow morning, so those of you who take Mopac to get downtown from Cedar Park/Round Rock/Pflugerville may want to take I-35, 360 or 183 tonight and perhaps tomorrow morning. But don’t go the way I’m going because I don’t need any more damn traffic in my way.

    Too far north? How very parochial of you!

    Too true, too true.

    If I didn’t work near 183 and Mopac, I’d probably remain south of 51st or 2222 most of the time. I still berate my father, who grew up in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan in the 50’s and 60’s (roughly 174th St.), for hardly ever venturing into midtown and experiencing all that there was to offer at the time. We all get used to our own ruts.
