One mile east of the RM 620 half diamond interchange on SH 45 N west. SH 45 overtakes RM 620 from the forthcoming exit west to U.S. 183. Photo taken 09/28/07.
SH 45 N continues west beyond the off-ramp for RM 620 with four lanes. RM 620 arcs 4.38 miles northeast to end at IH 35 in the city of Round Rock. Photo taken 09/28/07.
Two lanes leave SH 45 N west for RM 620. The sprawling Brushy Creek neighborhoods lie north of RM 620 along Great Oaks Drive west. Photo taken 09/28/07.
FM 734 (Parmer Lane) crosses paths with SH 45 N beyond the succeeding off-ramp. Parmer Lane carries all of FM 734 from U.S. 290 near Manor to FM 1431 at Cedar Park. Photo taken 09/28/07.
Westbound at the FM 734 (Parmer Lane) off-ramp on SH 45 N. Parmer Lane, a multi-lane divided arterial, heads north through growing residential areas of north Austin and Cedar Park. Southward, FM 734 serves the sprawling Millwood communities ahead of Loop 1 (MoPac Expressway). Photo taken 09/28/07.
The eastbound Parmer Lane on-ramp passes over the eastbound off-ramp to RM 620 as SH 45 N curves toward the Union Pacific Railroad and FM 734 overpasses. Photo taken 09/28/07.
SH 45 N advances one mile west to both the main line toll collection point and the Lake Creek Parkway off-ramp. Photo taken 09/28/07.
The forthcoming toll plaza previously separated traffic into TxTag high speed lanes and toll booths for cash collection. With the switch to all electronic tolling (AET) on January 1, 2013, two of the five toll booth lanes closed, with the remaining serving traffic from FM 734 and to Lake Creek Parkway. Photo taken 09/28/07.
Toll schedule sign at the FM 734 (Parmer Lane) overpass. Drivers with TxTag transponders pay a reduced rate over those paying with toll-by-plate. Photo taken 09/28/07.

SH 45 N ends with three lanes ascending toward U.S. 183 (Research Boulevard) and Toll 183A. A single lane continues west to RM 620, with extra pavement reserved for the future extension of SH 45 N to RM 2769 at the Travis County line. Photo taken 09/28/07.
