Lufkin Loop - | Lufkin and Nacogdoches, Texas

On Aug. 31, 2017, hundreds of drivers, some of whom were trying to return to their hurricane-ravaged homes, found themselves on the side of the road in Lufkin after melted tar began to stick to their tires, debilitating their vehicles. Today, those same drivers are waiting for answers. Through the Public Information Act, KTRE has obtained hundreds of documents from TxDOT and we will tell you the stories of those affected by that day and the state agency’s response as part of an ongoing series: The Day the Road Melted. .
