LUFKIN – Crews are scheduled to mill and inlay sections of SH 94 West in Angelina County beginning Tuesday, Jan. 21 and continuing through Friday, Jan. 24 that will require lane closures each day.
Work will begin on Tuesday near the intersection of SL 287 and SH 94 that will require closures within the intersection. Crews will work in the outside westbound lane of SH 94 from SL 287 to FM 706. The mill and inlay work will require a moving work zone while crews work to mill the surface and place an asphalt overlay to level the surface and extend the life of the roadway.
Traffic control will be in place and motorists are urged to obey all signage and flaggers.
“We want everyone to be prepared for slight delays through this area next week,” said Rhonda Oaks, public information officer for the Lufkin District. “When you approach a work zone, it is so important to stay alert and slow down. Watch closely for moving equipment and workers and always obey traffic control that is in place.”
Work schedules are subject to change in inclement weather. For more information on road closures and conditions statewide, visit drivetexas.org. For more information on this project, contact Rhonda.Oaks@txdot.gov or call (936) 633-4395.
