Released by The Tyler Police Department:
TYLER, TX - Starting at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, February 18, thru Saturday morning until 12:00 noon, Tyler Police Officers will be assisting Texas Department of Transportation contractor R.K. Hall, with traffic control on West Loop 323 in and around the State Highway 64 (W. Erwin) intersection.
Several traffic lanes will be shut down to allow the contractor to complete a paving project. We have experienced heavy traffic congestion and delays in the past.
Crews will begin working in the northbound lanes between SH 31 (Front Street) and SH 110 (Van Highway), which will require multiple lane closures while the work is in progress. Once completed, the crews will return to the southbound lanes.
If at all possible we urge motorists to seek alternate routes on Friday and Saturday to avoid delays.
Alternate routes include: 31 Kilgore Hwy/Front St. and 110 Van Hwy for east and westbound traffic and Glenwood or Palace for north and southbound traffic.
