Also this week, in Longview, crews are scheduled to begin several days of seal coat work on South Loop 281 between FM 2205 (Jaycee Drive) and Estes Parkway. Crews will skip over the area near FM 2087 where the overpass is scheduled to be built. Once the work on Loop 281 is complete, crews are scheduled to perform the same work on FM 1845 between FM 2605 and the Upshur County Line, and in various intersections on Spur 63 in Longview.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect in each location while the work is in progress. Motorists should be prepared to reduce speed and merge in and around the work zone. Loose gravel may be present for several days following a seal coat application.

RUSK COUNTY -- Texas Department of Transportation maintenance crews this week are scheduled to continue resurfacing operations in various locations on FM 1716 between Fm 782 and FM 2011. The work is being done in preparation for a seal coat application later this summer.

Looking ahead, beginning June 4, construction crews are scheduled to begin work to rebuild US 84 between Reklaw and FM 2753. The project will call for US 84 to be closed to all traffic during the work, so marked detours will be in place.
