All lanes of US 259 north of Nacogdoches have been reopened after a Friday morning crash. All lanes are clear for travel. Drive safely.

 

A Friday morning crash on Highway 259 north of Central Heights has resulted in the closure of northbound lanes.  The southbound lanes of that roadway from Mahl to a few miles south of Mt. Enterprise have now been transitioned to two-way traffic until the wreck site is cleared, hopefully by the mid-morning hours.

The Texas Department of Transportation reported this morning at 7:51 that two 18-wheelers were involved in this crash that took place near the intersection with County Road 140.  A video provided by motorist shows that at least one of the vehicles caught fire.  At this time, no information has been released concerning injuries.
