Price of Loop 49 Toll Waiting For Approval

It could cost just 2 quarters to drive on Loop 49.

There was speculation that it could cost between $0.50-0.75.  But the Texas Transportation Commission will consider a recommendation from TXDOT and the Regional Mobility Authority to make it $0.50.

TXDOT Public Information Officer Larry Krantz explains, "Our recommendation from the Northeast Texas Regional Mobility Authority was that $0.10 per mile would be a reasonable amount, where people would still drive on it but not feel like we were overcharging."

The recommendation $0.50 toll will be decided on September 28th.
