ANGELINA COUNTY, TEXAS (News Release) - Motorists traveling southbound on US 59 at the Angelina River Bridge should be prepared for delays beginning Monday.

Concrete is expected to be poured, weather permitting, to replace the southbound bridge railing. Traffic will be confined to one lane on the southbound bridge throughout the week. In addition, there will be a 10-foot width restriction on the bridge during the closure. The width restriction will be in force from 1-mile north of the Nacogdoches/Angelina County line to just south of the Angelina County line at the Angelina River. 

The closure is scheduled as part of the ongoing construction project designed to upgrade and replace bridge railings on US 59 North between Lufkin and Nacogdoches. Motorists are urged to reduce speed near the work area and be alert to workers near the river bridge. Lighted message boards are in place to remind and prepare motorists to be cautious as they approach the lane closure. 

A.L. Helmcamp, Buffalo Tx., contractor for the $1.1 million project, is expected to complete the work by late February, weather permitting. Southbound lanes of traffic should return to normal by the end of next week.

    More than a few tar-covered tires are hanging on to the parking lot of a Lufkin tire shop.  On August 31, newly laid asphalt on Loop 287 started sticking to tires of those driving, leaving many of the cars un-driveable. As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
