Construction to close portion of Toll 49 road

Drivers who use Toll 49 should plan for delays during the week of Sept. 29.

The west side of the toll road north of the intersection of State Highway 64 through the intersection with Interstate 20 will experience lane closures while preventive maintenance is performed. There will be one lane open at all times and work will be performed on the road during the day, during non-peak hours.

Additionally, Toll 49 will be closed between State Highway 155 and Old Jacksonville Road from sunset to sunrise between Sept. 28 and sunrise on Oct. 3 for gantry upgrades.

The North East Texas Regional Mobility Authority announced the construction in a Friday release.

Drivers should allow extra time for travel and make adjustments plans accordingly.
