Released by: The North East Texas Regional Mobility Authority

TYLER, TX - The North East Texas Regional Mobility authority (NET RMA) received notification that the Texas Transportation approved up to $90 million for construction of Segment 3B or Toll 49.

The stretch of road will connect to the segment of Toll 49 that is currently under construction at SH 31 and proceed north to connect with Interstate 20.
