Work is progressing in Lufkin on FM 324 (Bynum Street) as TxDOT Angelina County Maintenance crews complete one section and begin another.
Maintenance upgrades, including road base repairs and leveling operations, on FM 324 (Bynum Street) from Frank Avenue to Moore Avenue in Lufkin were completed on Tuesday. Motorists can expect additional closures on Bynum Street from Moore Avenue to Ellis Avenue to begin on Wednesday.
Alternate routes will be available to motorists traveling near the area but there are no set detours in place. The only vehicles allowed within the closures will be for business purposes only.
“Motorists should expect flaggers to be monitoring traffic as they approach the closed roadway,” said Rhonda Oaks, public information officer for the Lufkin District. “With businesses in this section, we are asking motorists to let the flaggers know if they need to enter for business purposes. We will be working to complete this section of the project by mid-week next week, weather permitting, so we ask everyone to continue to stay alert and be patient.”
The closure is expected to be from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily. Motorists are urged to be aware of barricades set near the area and reduce speed as they approach moving equipment or workers.
