Stretch of Loop 49 Not Open Yet

Transportation officials are saying the second leg of Loop 49 in Tyler is still not open.

The stretch from Old Jacksonville Highway to Paluxy Drive was supposed to open late December. But TxDOT officials say it probably won't be until mid-January because it's too cold to stripe the highway.

Once open, the new Loop will be free to all drivers through January, and free only to Tex-Tag users through February.
