A pre-construction meeting was held in Lufkin last week signaling the beginning of a new construction project in Trinity County.
Barricades will be set next week and construction is scheduled to begin by the end of the month on a section of US 287 extending from SH 94 to Harrison Avenue in Groveton. A.L. Helmcamp, Buffalo, TX, will serve as contractor for the $1.8 million project that is designed to reconstruct existing pavement.
As this project progresses, motorists are asked to stay alert to moving equipment and workers through the area. Obey all traffic control devices and prepare for intermittent daily lane closures through the project. Traffic fines double when workers are present.
