The NET RMA is working to improve long-term mobility and connectivity needs in east Tyler. A new study has launched to thoroughly review options to extend the existing Toll 49 north to I-20. The limits of the proposed Toll 49 Segment 6 are from the Toll 49 Segment 5 eastern terminus at SH 110 to I-20 in Smith County, Texas. A defined alignment has not yet been proposed.

The proposed project would consist of the design and construction of an interim two-lane (one lane in each direction) roadway with intermittent passing lanes. The ultimate design includes four lanes (two in each direction) with either a grassy median or a concrete barrier.
The NET RMA will prepare an environmental study to document potential impacts to the natural and human environment, and public involvement is a critical component to this effort.
Public Workshop No. 1
On Tuesday, December 11, 2018, the NET RMA hosted a public workshop to discuss the proposed extension of Toll 49. More than 280 members of the public attended and provided input regarding the design and alignment of the proposed route.
The workshop was held between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Chapel Hill High School Cafeteria (13172 State Hwy 64 East, Tyler, TX 75707).
