DALLAS - The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is accelerating plans for the $623 million U.S. 290 tollway near Austin to take advantage of federal stimulus funds, officials said.

The authority expects to issue $170 million of toll revenue bonds as early as next month for a 4.5-mile extension of its existing U.S. 183 tollway and about $230 million next spring for the first section of the 6.2-mile U.S. 290 East tollway that will connect with U.S. 183.
