Lindale residents gathered last night at City Hall for a public Forum regarding an estension of Toll 49 in the Lindale area.

Officials hope the extension would act as a relief to traffic on HWY 69 in Lindale. A concern of residents was that money from taxes could be taken away from improving county roads for this project. And some were concerned that this could divert traffic away from Lindale, causing businesses to suffer.

Another public hearing is planned for January.
