April 29, 2020 - Due to storms that rolled through overnight in much of the area, Oncor crews are working storm restoration that is expected to continue through the day and night. Time of restoration by Oncor is unknown at this time.
Because of this unforeseen circumstance, Oncor has canceled the work scheduled in Nacogdoches on US 59 and SL 224, which included nine rolling stops to remove electric wires through the flyover construction project.
At this time depending upon weather, this work has been rescheduled to Thursday, May 7th.
April 28, 2020 - Beginning April 30 (Thursday) at 7 am, Oncor Electric Delivery and Higher Power Electrical LLC will begin removing existing overhead electric lines that cross US 59 South and the southwest area of SL 224. There will be nine locations of work throughout the day will result in traffic stops and delays of about 15 minutes at each stop. Work is expected to be completed in one extended work day.
These rolling stops will begin on US 59 South and work north toward SL 224, continuing around the loop until work is completed. This work is in association with the ongoing TxDOT construction project designed to construct a flyover and new main lanes of travel along US 59/SL 224.
There will be traffic control provided at each location to assist in stopping traffic so that electric lines can be safely installed or removed. One particular location at Old Lufkin Road near the Nacogdoches Fire Station on SL 224, will require traffic control on both sides of the loop.
