LUFKIN – Motorists will experience delays beginning today through most of the week on US 59 South at SL 224 in Nacogdoches as work is planned to cement treat the soil for the future right turn lane for eastbound traffic on SL 224.
Webber, contractor for the $14 million construction project, will begin the treatment today through Tuesday. Traffic will be confined to one northbound lane during work hours near the intersection.
On Thursday, work is scheduled to move traffic in a final configuration, except for the right turn lane exiting onto SL 224 East. The intersection at Spradley Street is also scheduled to open. As striping is applied, traffic will be slowed through the area.
Motorists are urged to be alert to work through the project area this week as work begins to complete in some areas. Obey all traffic control devices and watch for workers near the lanes of traffic. Remember, traffic fines double when workers are present.
