Construction in Lufkin

LUFKIN - What was originally planned as two upcoming weekend closures on Business 59/North Timberland Drive at the A&NR Railroad Bridge has been rescheduled due to inclement weather.
The roadway is scheduled to be closed from Thursday, April 28 through Sunday, May 1 in order for construction crews to place bridge girders. Detour signs will be placed at alternate routes on SH 103 and SL 287.
Austin Bridge and Road Services, contractors for the $11.4 million project, is working to replace the railroad bridge and reconstruct Business 59 beneath the bridge. The roadway was recently opened to limited traffic with a clearance of 17 feet.
Motorists are advised to slow their speed through the area and obey the four-way flashing stop lights near the construction site. The project is expected to be completed in late summer, weather permitting.
