A Lufkin man in a motorized wheelchair died due to injuries suffered in an auto/pedestrian accident that occurred Thursday morning on Atkinson Drive. Details from a release from the Lufkin Police Department follow:
In case you haven't noticed, Summer's here. It officially arrived late last weekend. The temperatures across East Texas have been a few degrees above normal since Summer began, but it has been a welcome relief to try to dry out some of the yards and pastures in the area. Get ready for a change, though.
Earlier this Spring, when my daughter came home from college for a visit, she was extremely excited to learn that Lufkin would soon have a Chipotle Mexican Grill Restaurant. She referred to their cuisine as 'food from the gods'. Well, the wait is over.
Motorists that travel Highway 59 north of Nacogdoches to the north of Garrison can expect changes. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is preparing to post new lower speed limit signs this week on a portion of US 59 in Nacogdoches County.
The new FM 2021 bridge over Highway 59 is now open, at least partially. According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the west side to cross over to FM 2021 is still closed for some finishing concrete touches, although the overpass is open to cross over from FM 2021 East or make the turn-around for US 59. The west side should be open by the end of the week making it possible for motorists to cross over completely on FM 2021.
Rainfall from the remnants of Tropical Depression Bill continues to cause flooding across parts of East Texas. The National Weather Service has extended the Flash Flood Warning for Angelina and Nacogdoches counties until 6:45 this evening.
The remnants of Bill are raining down on East Texas...hard! As of 9:30 this morning, 2-3 inches of rain has already fallen in areas near Lake Livingston, Apple Springs, Hudson, and Pollok, and more is on the way.
