White House Drive Expansion

by Christa Lollis

Construction on the White House Drive extension in Lufkin has been going on for the past few months. While it may look like the road is close to being done, it's not ready for traffic just yet.   Crews are still waiting on beams to come in for the bridge. Those are expected to come in by the end of the month.

The road is set to open in November but if work continues to go smoothly, and the weather cooperates, drivers could be using it much sooner. The new road will allow drivers to cut through from 59 to FM 819 without going around Angelina College.
