Earl Campbell Parkway: Where does it go?

TYLER,TX (KLTV) - If you've driven Loop 323 going towards Sam's Club in Tyler, chances are you've seen the traffic and the signs.

More than a year ago, city officials renamed the extension of New Sunnybrook Dr. to Earl Campbell Parkway in honor of the Tyler Native.

But many East Texans are wondering-- where is it going?

"I see all of the construction, but I have no clue," said Heather Anthony, curious about the road.

"I'd like to find out just exactly what all the work involved has produced so far I haven't seen much but an extra entry to Sam's," said Phil Eichorst, curious about road.

Last year Tyler officials renamed the street Earl Campbell Parkway in honor of Tyler native and former NFL player Earl Campbell.

One year later, many see the beginning, but wonder where it will end.

At the time this story was posted, construction was 42% complete on the roadway.

The road is expected to open sometime this fall.

Carter Delleney, City of Tyler Engineer, says there are future plans for the road to eventually connect with Highway 31.
