LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The wind and rain from Gustav is causing a few problems for TxDOT, but the Whitehouse bridge will be closed Friday night as scheduled.
The bridge will close to traffic starting at 8:00pm Friday, and remain closed until Saturday morning until crews finish up.
They will be hanging i-beams for the new part of the bridge.
Construction on the 59 project was delayed slightly because of the holiday and hurricane traffic, but crews expect to be back on the job Wednesday.
