Construction delays in Smith County this week

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Roadwork is expected to slow motorists in Smith County this week, especially on FM 14 north of Tyler.

Construction crews have resumed paving work on FM 14 between North Loop 323 in Tyler and Interstate 20. Motorists should expect long delays in this area.

Texas Department of Transportation maintenance crews are also scheduled to continue base and pavement repairs on East Loop 323 between the Loop 323 Extension and Commerce Street.

Daytime lane closures will be in effect in each location while the work is in progress, and flaggers will control traffic in two-lane areas.

Motorists should use alternate routes to avoid these delays and make the work zone safer for construction crews.
