New Red Light Stops Traffic on Highway 69

Anyone travelling down Highway 69 between the Loop 323 and I-20 now have an extra stop to make.

A signal light was activated Thursday at the intersection of 69 and Ann Campbell near Tyler Pipe. The Tyler Chamber of Commerce asked the Department of Transportation to put up the new light. After a study of the intersection, TX-DOT decided there was enough evidence to suggest there was a safety concern on Highway 69.

Reports suggest there have been many accidents at the intersection on 69 near Tyler Pipe, some even fatal.
