Road Work, Delays Coming Up for Busy Lufkin/Nacogdoches Roadways

Motorists in Lufkin and Nacogdoches should prepare for detours and delays soon on Highway 59 South and Loop 287 in Lufkin, and at the railroad tracks on the Southeast Loop in Nacogdoches. 

Beginning next week, the overpass connecting Loop 287 southbound to Highway 59 South (Houston exit) will be closed and traffic rerouted to the red light at South First Street.  Texas Department of Transportation work (TxDOT) crews will be sweeping debris from the overpass, plus under the overpass, crews will be working on the concrete barrier walls.  Northbound Loop traffic in that area will be reduced to one lane as well.

According to TxDOT, motorists should also prepare for a detour on Sunday, February 12th in Nacogdoches.

Union Pacific Railroad is scheduled to replace the railroad crossing on Loop 224 East  which will require traffic to be rerouted throughout the day. Nacogdoches TxDOT crews will close the roadway beginning at 7 am at FM 2863 (Press Road) to FM 1275 (University Drive).

Traffic should choose alternate routes around the area during work hours. Work is expected to be completed by 5 pm, weather permitting. TxDOT will display message boards reminding motorists of the closure. There will also be crews to monitor traffic and assist with barricades and patch work as railroad employees complete this work.

Motorists are urged to stay alert and be attentive to all lighted message boards and barricades in the area. Choose alternate routes to alleviate delays and congestion during work hours. For a complete list of closures, visit

Rhonda Oaks from TxDOT, goes into more detail in the video below.
