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. Click here to see a study area map.
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.
