According to a release from the Lufkin Police Department, Southwood Drive from Gobblers Knob Road to Saddlebrook Drive will be closed for the next three to five hours as an Oncor crew is working to replace a power pole that was knocked down in a vehicle accident earlier this morning.  

According to a spokesperson from Southwood Drive Animal Clinic, persons that need to bring their pets to the clinic are being allowed through as long as they enter that closed section of roadway from the north (from the Loop side of the road).  Motorists that are approaching from Highway 59 or the water treatment plant are being turned around.

Take an alternate route and expect delays when using nearby intersections.
