COMMUTER ALERT: Newest segment of Loop 49 to open next week

Posted: Updated:
TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The newest segment of Toll 49, connecting Highway 110 South to Interstate 20, is expected to open Thursday, March 28, at 6:00pm.

Mile-by-mile, Toll 49 is slowly coming to fruition. When the next segment opens, the completed part of the project will be 26 miles long. But it's not stopping there.

"The road is planned to go further north toward Lindale and tie into Interstate 69 north of Lindale," NET RMA interim executive director Everett Owen said on March 1.

Future plans also extend Toll 49 to extend to the east and the north through Gregg, Upshur and Harrison counties.
