Police Prepare For Panther Football

The Lufkin Panthers play their first home game of the season Friday night. The police department is preparing for heavy post-game traffic.

Lufkin Avenue will close Friday to outbound traffic from Loop 287. The closure will happen around 9:45 p.m. and re-open once traffic gets a little lighter.

This will be the procedure for each home game.

Parents picking up their children from Abe Martin Stadium should take Ford Chapel Road along the access feeder to the campus.
