Once the Thanksgiving holiday weekend has passed, work crews with the Texas Department of Transportation will be busy doing repair work just north of Nacogdoches.

Work will be taking place on Business 59, at the intersection of US 59 and US 259 to allow for the repair of the concrete bridge rail on the northbound overpass that crosses US 59.

The inside lane of Business 59 North will be closed to through traffic to US 259 North. Motorists needing to access US 259 North will still be able to access the clover leaf onto US 259 North. The work should be completed in about three weeks, weather permitting.

Motorists traveling the area should prepare for delays or choose alternate routes. This will be active TxDOT work zone with moving equipment and crews working near traffic. Fines double while workers are present. Motorists are advised to stay alert and obey all traffic control devices, flaggers and never cross between drums or cones.
