LUFKIN – Motorists will see barricades and orange cones set along sections of US 69 South in Angelina County this week as construction crews begin a new project.
L.C. Jordan & Son, contractor for the $861,310 project, is scheduled to begin safety work from SL 287 to just north of Huntington. Work will include safety treating fixed objects and upgrading bridge railings and metal beam guard fences at several areas including Biloxi Branch, Biloxi Creek and Buck Creek.
Work is scheduled to continue for about three months, weather permitting. The work could require lane closures at various times and locations throughout the project. Motorists are urged to be alert to all signage and flaggers as work progresses.
Motorists should prepare for delays during construction hours. Stay alert to moving machinery, equipment and workers through the work area. Reduce speed through construction zones and remember that traffic fines double when workers are present.
