Extra Caution Urged on Bridges And Overpasses
TxDOT says Lufkin is part of a 9-county area that continues to see ice on bridges and overpasses. Angelina River bridges have seen icy patches today, and some roads have been closed.
Several bridges within the Lufkin City Limits have been salted and sanded, but you may still encounter slick spots.
Crews continue to treat roads covered with ice. If you must travel, slow down & allow extra time to reach your destinations. Be Safe!

TxDOT crews are out monitoring roadways and have worked through the night to get salt and sand to as many roadways as possible. Some areas of East Texas say they have several inches of snow on the ground, and as you can see here on the website, there are many closures in place.
