TxDot Starts Traffic Improvements

Drivers who use Highway 103 west of Lufkin to get around can expect some minor delays for a while.

The Texas Department of Transportation started a long-term project that includes widening and fixing up the roadway.  The traffic shift will start at FM 706 and run about four miles west.

All traffic will be moved to the westbound lane and shoulder while crews work on the eastbound sections of the roadway. Westbound traffic will drive on the westbound shoulder while eastbound traffic will move to the westbound driving lane.
