Tyler, Texas (KETK) — For a stretch of East Texas highway infamously known as "Bloody 31," drivers and residents in that area say change and safety can't come soon enough.
The Texas Department of Transportation announced it will begin construction on passing lanes to State Highway 31, east of Tyler.
The $3.5 million project is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2015.
