349 Reliever Route Opens in Midland County

MIDLAND - Now that it's been dedicated, it's finally ready for use.

The State Highway 349 reliever route, in its entirety, was open to drivers for the first time Thursday.

The 16-mile stretch goes from 349 north of Midland to FM 1788 in western Midland County.

It's meant to take commercial traffic around Midland so it doesn't clog up Loop 250.
