If your travels take you to the northwest side of Lufkin today or tomorrow, you'll need to know about some road construction taking place in that part of the city.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, crews are laying hot mix on the Northwest Loop 287 near the Highway 103 West/Raguet Street intersection. Motorists should prepare to take alternate routes to local businesses in this area through tomorrow (8/9). Lane closures and delays expected.

This construction project extends from the A&NR Railroad overpass to the Highway 103 West/Raguet Street intersection. Reduce speed in the area and stay alert for moving equipment and workers.
