WACO (July 18, 2014) Loop 574, a four-lane connector road between La Salle Avenue and Interstate 35 in Waco, is now open to traffic, the Texas Department of Transportation said Friday.

The two-mile divided roadway extends Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to La Salle, and includes sidewalks, bike lanes and protected left-turn lanes.

Work on the $14.4 million two-mile project started in June 2013.

Work on illumination, landscaping and an irrigation system must still be completed.

The City of Waco footed some of the bill for the project, which will increase access to Baylor's new McLane Stadium.
