Loop 287 roadwork means drivers are down to one lane

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - TxDOT has opened up the inside lane on Loop 287 near Pershing avenue.

They've been doing some preventative maintenance to the roadway on west Loop 287 from 94 to Timerland.

The inside lane on both sides has been closed, but TxDOT opened it up so motorists can drive on it as workers move to work on the outside lanes.

They should be finished working on the west loop Thursday evening.
