New Segment Of Loop 49 Will Soon Open To Traffic

  When drivers hit Segment Two of the Loop 49 project, they will be able to travel from Highway 69 to FM 756, south of Tyler.  The ribbon was cut today, marking the completion of the expansion, and a formal opening is set for later in December.  Just one more option, TxDOT said drivers can appreciate.

"The more we add to it, the more options we give people, and that's what Loop 49 is really about," Larry Krantz with TxDOT said.  Kranz said giving people an option to get around some of the heavier traffic is just one goal TxDOT has with the project

When it opens to traffic later in December, Segment Two will be free for drivers throughout the month of January, and free for TxTag users through February.
