From the Lufkin Police Dept.:

ANGELINA CO (KYTX) - The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project on Highway 59 between Lufkin and Nacogdoches necessitates the relocation of telephone service fiber optic cable ,and the work might result in a temporary disruption in 9-1-1 service for Angelina County.

TxDOT expects the relocation work to begin at 12:00 AM Friday, November 01, and end by 8:00 AM Friday, November 01.


If temporary 9-1-1 service disruptions occur, the Lufkin Police and Fire Dispatch Center will receive calls through its main number, (936) 633-0356, and route the calls to the appropriate emergency response agency.


During this planned work, as well as during any unplanned disruptions, callers who cannot reach emergency services by dialing 9-1-1 may call their local law enforcement agency or the Lufkin Police and Fire Dispatch Center main number, (936) 633-0356.


The City of Lufkin will transmit this information through the Everbridge Aware Alert System to residents listed in the 9-1-1 database and to those who have self-registered for Everbridge alerts at www.alertlufkin.com.


Lufkin Police Department will notify area media outlets when the fiber optic cable relocation work is complete. Citizens SHOULD NOT call 9-1-1 or the Lufkin Police and Fire Dispatch Center to "test" the service.
