Reel Rd. reduced to one lane for roadwork

Released by The City of Longview:

LONGVIEW, TX - Lane closures are scheduled to begin Friday, January 28, 2011, for the Reel Road Widening Project between Gilmer Road and Knobcrest Drive. Motorists can use Loop 281 as an alternate route to avoid delays.

The purpose of the project is to widen the section of road from two lanes to four lanes. Traffic will be limited to eastbound only from Knobcrest to Gilmer Road. Westbound traffic will be detoured through Regal Oak Drive. The closure will be effective through the summer.

This project was approved by voters as part of the Capital Improvements Bond Election in May 2007. This project is being constructed by East Texas Bridge of Longview, Texas. For questions related to construction, please call the City's Project Manager, Alton Bradley, at 903-237-1067.
