Loop 49 Opens To Public

After more than 30 years of planning, part of Loop 49 is finally open.   The first phase, the section between Highway 155 South and U.S. Highway 69, is complete, and, as of Tuesday it's open to the public.   The traffic signals on both ends are now working as well. Loop 49 will eventually be a toll road, but not until November. When tolling begins, East Texans can either buy a TxTag or use video tolling that reads your license plate and sends you a bill in the mail.
