Work begins today on SL 224 in Nacogdoches that will require lane closures throughout the week.
On Monday crews mill and inlay the roadway on SL 224 West/Stallings Dr. near Westward Drive. Motorists can expect delays at the entry/exit ramps and alternating lane closures on SL 224 during work hours. Work in this section is expected to be completed on Wednesday, weather permitting.
Crews will then move to work near Nacogdoches High School on Thursday in alternating lanes. On Friday and Saturday work is scheduled for sections further east on SL 224 near FM 2259. Traffic control will be in place through the work zones. Work is expected to be completed on Saturday.
Mill and inlay requires removing the upper layer of the existing asphalt in order to remove any cracks, ruts and imperfections. A thin layer of asphalt is then placed on top of the milled surface, which levels and extends the life of the roadway.
Motorists are urged to stay alert for workers and moving equipment as they travel SL 224 throughout the week. Obey all traffic control and signage and reduce speed near the work zone. Motorists should be prepared for delays during peak travel hours or choose alternate routes.
