The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is alerting Lufkin area motorists of some upcoming road work that will lead to detours and delays on some high traffic roads and highways.

According to a media release, TxDOT crews will begin mill and inlay work on Brentwood Drive in Lufkin on Wednesday (January 26) that will involve traffic being led by a lead car through the work zone.

Work is scheduled to begin on Brentwood Drive, near Crown Colony Subdivision on Wednesday morning and move toward FM 58. Travel will be confined to a single lane. Work will begin once traffic has slowed from the peak morning travel hour.

Once work is completed on Brentwood Drive, crews will move to Highway 94 at Loop 287/Frank Street intersection where crews will also work to mill and inlay the intersection. Motorists should expect alternating lane closures within the intersection as work progresses.

In addition, crews have scheduled mill and inlay this week on Lufkin Avenue from Timberland Drive to Loop 287 in Lufkin. This work will include the closure of both outbound lanes from Timberland Drive, and inbound traffic from Loop 287 will be confined to a single lane. Traffic control will be set through this work zone and near Lufkin High School as this work continues through the end of the week, weather permitting.
