TYLER - Road construction crews were hard at work on Earl Campbell Parkway on Friday, which will run from Highway 155 to the Loop 323 in Tyler.

Originally an extension of New Sunnybrook Drive, the new road's name was changed last year to Earl Campbell Parkway by city officials.

Those looking to take advatage of the new road, officials say, don't expect the road to be done anytime this year.

They say the two year project may not look like much now, but in the fall of 2012 it will be a four lane highway connecting the two busy areas.

Tom Mullins said. “There’s 550 acres there available for development." And guess who owns most of that 550 acres. If you guessed the Fair group, you guessed right. The taxpayers of Tyler and Smith County are being bled dry so that the Fair family can get richer and richer. Other examples are Loop 49 and the extension of water and sewer service north to Interstate 20, both of which open more Fair property to development.
