Construction on Frank Avenue Starts this Week

Lufkin drivers will need to avoid certain areas of town over the next three weeks. That's because some roads are being resurfaced.

The highway department will shut down Frank Avenue between Herndon and Timberland Drive starting Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.

The $337,000 project was set to start last month, but was put on hold because of bad weather.

Construction will start at 7:00 p.m. Thursday and end at 6:00 a.m. There will be no night work on Friday or Saturday, but construction will resume Sunday night.
