Old Hwy. 11 Road Work in Oak Grove

With the Lamar County Schools on summer break, the contractors working on Old Hwy 11 in the Oak Grove area have scheduled an increase in crews and activity along the length of the project over the next several weeks.  The majority of the work will be focused on installation of the final asphalt courses along Old Hwy 11.

In the absence of school traffic, the contractor has asked to work longer days (if necessary) which could impact morning and afternoon commuters.  One lane closures, detours, and delays should be expected throughout each workday during this period as crews work to bring this project to completion.

The impacts to traffic will vary throughout each day as the crews maneuver the project limits.  Access to local businesses and residents will be available at all times, however, delays may be encountered depending on the exact location of work that is taking place.

In an effort to reduce traffic in this area, please consider utilizing alternate routes for your commute each day and be alert to detours that the contractor has in place and/or flagman in place for traffic control.
