A pre-construction meeting held Wednesday in the Lufkin Area Office signaled the beginning of a new construction project on US 59 North in Angelina County.

Barricades will be set next week for the project area on US 59, beginning just north of FM 2021 in Redland to the Angelina River Bridge. Moore Brothers Construction Company, Lufkin, will serve as contractor for the $2.9 million project to resurface the roadway. Work includes removing the existing surface, and then placing a layer of hot mix asphalt for leveling, a sealcoat application and the final riding surface layer designed to reduce water spray and noise.

Work on this project should begin by June 5 and last up to six months, weather permitting. As this project begins, motorists are urged to reduce speed, obey all traffic control devices, stay alert and prepare for delays through the work area. Remember, traffic fines double when workers are present.
