Closures, Delays Announced on East Texas Roads
A diesel spill and road construction will be causing some delays this afternoon. The following is the official release from the Texas Department of Transportation.
FM 95, three miles south of Martinsville in Nacogdoches County has been reduced to one lane this afternoon following a truck wreck. DPS is providing traffic control and reporting no injuries. However, a hazardous materials team is en route to the location to clean up the approximately 160 gallons of diesel leaking from the truck. The roadway will remain at reduced capacity until further notice.
Also, TxDOT is conducting milling work at the intersection of U.S. 59 and FM 819 in Lufkin and has reduced both the northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. 59 to one lane. The traffic signal at the intersection has been set to continuous green lights for U.S. 59 traffic to minimize delays. This requires all FM 819 traffic to turn right onto U.S. 59. This work is expected to be completed today.
