Expect delays as crews work at Tulane & Loop

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Construction and traffic delays continue on Loop 287 in Lufkin, making the drive a little more time consuming.

Now that crews have taken down the Tulane Bridge, they are working down in the Loop's main lanes.

Thursday, the outside lanes and several ramps were closed, backing traffic up on the feeders.

This construction will continue for the next several months as crews work to rebuild the bridge.

Officials say to expect delays and avoid the area if possible
