TYLER - When Tylerites and out-of-towners look for a place to live, work, shop and do business five years from now, the first place on the list of possibilities likely will be in south Tyler, Realtors, developers and builders say.

The following are major developments that will aid in the expansion of south Tyler.

   development near the intersection of South Broadway Ave. and Toll 49.
• The Tyler City Council in April 2013 approved construction of a 250-room Marriott hotel and  
   conference center at Loop 49 and South Broadway Ave.
• The new east-west Cumberland Rd. extension, which the city has in the works, will expand vehicular
   flow on the south side.
• The widening of a busy section of Old Jacksonville between Gresham and Flint is in the works.
