Barricades have been removed from a new road connecting Hollytree Drive with Cumberland Road.

Members of the public are now driving on the new road, called Maple Lane, which runs south from Hollytree Drive and connects with Cumberland Road.

Karl Seydler, who does engineering plan review for the city, said the city would finish the paperwork to accept the road into the city inventory at the end of this week or next week.

Private developers built the road as part of a plan by Genecov West Mud Creek LLC and Roosth Properties LLC for a mixed-use development on approximately 430 acres south of Hollytree.

Road construction was completed about two months ago, but the city had not accepted the road yet because the developers had not finished building sewer infrastructure, Seydler said at the time. 

Hollytree is an upscale subdivision in a rapidly growing area in Tyler and shares its name with the nearby Hollytree Country Club. The subdivision is south of West Grande Boulevard, west of South Broadway Avenue and north of Faulkner Park.
