Also, this is Austin's first new controlled access facility without tolls in-- how long?
The recently-opened south extension of MoPac at Slaughter qualifies as a new freeway section. But before that, it was probably SH 71 near the airport. But you are correct, that Austin has been victim of toll road hegemony since the mid-2000s.

^ I don’t think they are upgrading the road to a freeway… from what I’m seeing it’s a couple of intersections being converted.

Eventually they will convert all of them

They are "supposed" to.
