LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Workers will start paving the southbound main lanes Tuesday, June 2, and one week later, on June 9, the southbound on-ramp, near El Chico, will be closed until further notice.  Instead of using the southbound ramp, you will have to continue on the frontage road through the Whitehouse, Daniel McCall Drive intersection.

Also on June 9, the southbound overpass will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Once the overpass re-opens all traffic exiting the high overpass will be shifted to the far right lane of U.S. 59.

During the week of June 8, the Tulane Drive intersection is scheduled to re-open to traffic.
