Road Closures Scheduled For Highway 59

Road closures are scheduled in Lufkin at US 59 South and SL 287 next Wednesday and Thursday as maintenance crews work near the northbound and southbound direct connectors.
On Wednesday, Jan. 13, the southbound direct connector from SL 287 to US 59/South First Street will be closed as barrier walls are straightened. Both northbound and southbound inside lanes of US 59 will also be closed near Walmart.
On Thursday, Jan. 14, the northbound direct connector will be closed as barrier walls are straightened. The inside lane of the northbound feeder road near the Texas Forest Service will also be closed. The roadwork is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
"This maintenance work is scheduled during hours that we hope will impact drivers the least," said Rhonda Oaks, public information officer for the Lufkin District. "This is a high traffic area for vehicles and large trucks and we are urging motorists to slow down, be alert to slowing traffic and plan for possible delays these two days."
Motorists are urged to stay cautious and obey all signage. Orange cones, barrels or barriers warn of lane closures, workers and possible traffic pattern changes in the area.
