Loop 49 Will Be Tollway

A quick way to I-20 is in the works, and now it could be completed in seven years, as compared to 30 years. The Texas Transportation Commission approved Loop 49 as a toll road today. TxDOT says with the ability to toll, the project was expedited.

The first segment, between Highways 69 and 155 will open this summer. Once Loop 49 goes to I-20, it will be expanded from two lanes to four. The amount of the toll is still undetermined.
