Lufkin — Several roads in Lufkin will be closed for the next hour due to an oversized load.
The oversized load on Loop 287 north bound between South First Street and South Chestnut Street is unable to pass beneath the Chestnut Street overpass due to its height.
Lufkin Police Officers are escorting the truck back to South First Street via the north bound fly-over lane.
The north bound fly-over lane from South First to South Medford (East Loop) and the South Medford feeder road from South First to South Chestnut Street will be closed until approximately 11:30 AM today.
Drivers will be directed to continue north bound on South First Street at the Loop or use South John Redditt Drive (West Loop).
