LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - The City of Lufkin is asking drivers to stay off of Loop 287 so the roadway can be treated.

The roads are extremely dangerous with the powder from this morning now packed down and is turning into sheets of ice.

The city reports only one truck has the capability to remove the ice to properly treat the road, but to do so Loop 287 must be clear of traffic.
