Construction will begin Monday on the Lufkin Forward Downtown Project with the closure of South First Street from East Shepherd Avenue to Frank Avenue. A portion of Lufkin Avenue will also be closed from the First Street intersection to in front of the Lufkin ISD Administration building.
The project includes sidewalk enhancements, landscaping, and lighting improvements.
This closure is essential to facilitate the construction process safely and efficiently. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, and we urge all affected individuals to plan ahead and utilize alternate routes during this period.
We appreciate the patience and understanding of the community as we work diligently to bring this vision to life.
Completion of the project is expected by late September.
