I-10 eastbound between mile marker 116.5 and mile marker 117 (Atchafalaya Basin Bridge) will have an inside lane closure beginning on Thursday, June 10 at 8:00 p.m. until Friday, June 11 at 6:00 a.m., weather permitting.
This closure is required in order to install a sign bracket on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.
There will be no vehicle width restrictions associated with this lane closure.
Emergency vehicles will have access to the area but may encounter delays. No detour route is necessary.
This work is related to the FASTLANE I-10 widening project (State Project Number H.003014). This $54.7 million project will involve pavement replacement within the existing lanes in each direction for 2.7 miles along I-10 from LA 347 to the base of the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. An additional lane will be added in the westbound direction.
With the help of the FASTLANE grant, this is the second of three projects to reconstruct and widen the I-10 corridor from I-49 to the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.
The project began in July 2017 and is estimated for completion in November 2021.
