LUFKIN – Work is expected to begin Monday, July 22, in Shelby County that will require lane closures at an intersection through August 9, weather permitting.
SH 87 at SL 500 in Center will have lane closures and delays as parts of the intersection are milled and repairs are made to the base of the roadway. A hot mix overlay will be applied to the intersection to complete the surface. Intermittent lane closures are expected throughout the project until completion.
This project is designed to rehabilitate the existing roadway in order to enhance safety and extend the life of the roadway. Traffic control will be in place throughout the project.
Motorists are urged to reduce speed in and near the work zone, respect all traffic control and stay alert for workers and moving equipment. For information on closures and road conditions, visit drivetexas.org.
