Work is scheduled to begin Monday on SL 224 in Nacogdoches that will include daily lane closures.

Crews will begin applying an asphalt overlay to SL 224 beginning at the intersection of FM 2609/Appleby Sand Road and continue working toward US 59. Work zones are scheduled to be set beginning at 8:30 am each morning in order to accommodate school traffic. Work is expected to continue throughout the week.

Drewery Construction, Nacogdoches, will serve as contractor for the project that extends from FM 2259 to US 59 South. As this work progresses, motorists are urged to reduce speed and stay alert for workers and moving equipment through and near the work zone. Obey all traffic control and prepare for possible delays during peak travel hours.
