Sidewalk project approved on Sayers Street

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

One north Lufkin street will soon be seeing some renovations.

The City of Lufkin has approved the construction of a sidewalk on Sayers Street from Brandon Elementary School to Creekside.

City Councilman Robert Shankle says the road has been an area of concern for residents and the sidewalk will increase safety for pedestrians.

The project was funded by the TxDot Statewide Transportation Enhancement Program.

"I live on Sayers Street and I can sit on the porch and watch the kids walk up and down the street and have to get in the grass and avoid the cars because it's a safety hazard and so I'm very pleased that we are finally getting a sidewalk," said Shankle.

Once work is completed on the Kurth Drive sidewalk construction will begin on Sayers Street in about two weeks.
