The Texas Department of Transportation is advising motorists that road crews are expected to begin work in coming days on the northbound side of US 59, south of Nacogdoches, where motorists will experience daily lane closures as work progresses.

Work is completing on the southbound side of US 59 to widen the roadway and is scheduled to move to the northbound side beginning at the grassy median, south of Nacogdoches, and continuing to County Road 523, near Woodland Hills golf course.

Road crews will include the addition of a crossover and truck turnaround which will allow southbound motorists the option to make a safe turn to access northbound lanes.

Barriers will be placed along the northbound shoulder of US 59 where work will begin. Moore Brothers Construction Co., Lufkin, will serve as contractor for the $1 million construction project that is scheduled to be completed by March 2021, weather permitting.
