The contractor responsible for finishing work on Segment 3B of Tyler's Loop 49 tollway says the final stretch of the road will be open Thursday.
Segment 3B connects the current northern end of Loop 49 at Highway 31 near Chandler with the junction at I-20 between Lindale and Hideaway Lake.
The CH2M Hill company announced an expected completion date for its construction work late last week. The company plans on removing barricades at the I-20 end around 6 p.m. Thursday with the removal of barricades on the Highway 31 end to follow shortly thereafter.
Construction on Loop 49 began in 2003.
