It's going to cost ten cents a mile to drive Loop 49. The toll was set by the Texas Transportation Commission in Austin. The first segment of Loop 49 between Highway 155 and South Broadway which opened this summer.

The cost to drive the entire Loop is 50 cents with a TxTag, vehicles without a TxTag will be higher. TXDOT says the toll received from Loop 49 will come back to East Texas to help with Loop 49 and other projects in the area. 

Tolling will begin on November 27th. Tolls will be collected either through a TxTag debit account or by billing vehicles without TxTags by vehicle registration information.
