The SH 183 Managed Lanes project involves the design, construction, short-term financing, operation and maintenance of a 14-mile portion of State Highway 183 through the cities of Euless, Irving and Dallas in Texas.

The SH 183 highway serves as a primary artery between Dallas and Fort Worth and no longer adequately meets current daily traffic demands with congestion expected to double in coming decades.
