LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - According to Lufkin police, traffic is being diverted around a portion of Hwy 69.

According to Jessica Pebsworth with the City of Lufkin, US Hwy 69 north, just before the State Supported Living Center, is open, but traffic is sharing one side of the roadway. This is due to an ongoing, multi-agency investigation on the other side of the roadway.

Law enforcement from both Cherokee and Angelina counties were involved in a hostage rescue along the highway.

Pebsworth said drivers should use caution and expect delays if they are in that area.
