LUFKIN, TX (News Release) - As construction continues on Business 59/North Timberland Drive at the A&NR Railroad underpass, the roadway is scheduled to be closed for the next two weekends.

Closures are set for the weekends of April 23 and 24 and April 30 and May 1 in order for construction crews to place bridge girders. Detour signs will be placed at alternate routes on SH 103 and SL 287.

Austin Bridge and Road Services, contractors for the $11.4 million project, is working to replace the railroad bridge and reconstruct Business 59 beneath the bridge. The roadway was recently opened to limited traffic with a clearance of 17 feet.

Motorists are advised to slow their speed through the area and obey the four-way flashing stop lights near the construction site. The project is expected to be completed in late summer, weather permitting.

For more information, contact Rhonda.Oaks@txdot.gov or (936) 633-4395.
