This past week, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) announced plans of a resurfacing project on Highway 59 north of Lufkin which will cause delays and temporary one lane closures.  

Barricades will be set following the Memorial Day Weekend for the project area on US 59, beginning just north of FM 2021 in Redland to the Angelina River Bridge. Moore Brothers Construction Company, Lufkin, will serve as contractor for the $2.9 million project to resurface the roadway.

Work includes removing the existing surface, and then placing a layer of hot mix asphalt for leveling, a sealcoat application and the final riding surface layer designed to reduce water spray and noise. Work on this project should begin by June 5 and last up to six months, weather permitting.

As this project begins, motorists are urged to reduce speed, obey all traffic control devices, stay alert and prepare for delays through the work area. Remember, traffic fines double when workers are present.
