NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The Texas Department of Transportation will be shutting down a portion of South loop 224 East Sunday, so Union Pacific can replace the railroad crossing located just west of University Drive.

The construction will require traffic to be re-routed throughout the day. Starting at 7 a.m. Monday, TxDOT crews from Nacogdoches will close South Loop 224 East from Press Road to University Drive.

The Sunday work schedule is designed to accommodate the town's heavy industrial area.

A TxDOT spokesperson said motorists should choose alternative routes around the area during work hours.
