Road Construction

by Christa Lollis

Construction in Lufkin on loop 287 at the Angelina and Neches river railroad bridge will begin Friday. TXDOT says over the next two months crews will be working on the bridge to replace a damaged beam and to raise the bridge. This Friday nighttime work will have the northbound lanes closed beginning at 6 and is expected to reopen early Saturday morning. TXDOT is advising drivers to be cautious in the area and take alternate routes when possible.
