State Highway 45 Southeast tollroad (TR) opened today May 7, the fifth pike in the Austin Texas metro area. A 12km (7.5 mile) 4-lane expressway it provides improved east-west connectivity in the southern part of the Texas' capital area, as well as being the final leg, in combination with SH130 tollroad, of an eastern bypass or half-belt route on the eastside of the 1m pop metro area.

So does this mean that as one drives IH-35, they will encounter two SH-45's? The northern one is not signed as SH-45 NE, just plain old Texas 45.

I guess it technocally 2 TX-45, unless they link both of them by multiplex it with TX-130

Yeah you will get two SH 45's... the last time I was there the signs were up they were just covered by a semi-see-thru tarp. But you get two Belt Line Roads, two IH-410, two Loop 288s, two 337s, and more than two US 77s on 35 in Texas anyway so whats one more?  :-/
