Crews are continuing work on a U.S. 59 flyover, part of an the projects on a planned Interstate 69 corridor.

Just east of U.S. 59 near Loop 224, work has begun on what will be the main lanes of Interstate 69, the Texas Department of Transportation reported this week.

“In coming weeks, both overpass bridge decks will be constructed up to the last span before crossing over existing U.S. 59,” the Lufkin District spokeswoman said in an announcement Wednesday, adding that the first seven spans of bridge deck on the northbound overpass has been completed.
