Get ready for traffic tie ups and delays next week as road crews are scheduled to mill and inlay sections of Highway 94 from Lufkin to Hudson.  This work is set to begin Tuesday, January 21st and continue through Friday, January 24th.  This will require lane closures each day.

Work will begin on Tuesday near the intersection of Loop 287 and Highway 94 that will require closures within the intersection. Crews will work in the outside westbound lane of Highway 94 from Loop 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.”

A contract worker/flagger was severely injured during an accident in a work zone in Zavalla last week, so, please, slow down and be observant.
