The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on Monday, January 8th, 2018 GeoEngineer’s Inc. will begin soil boring operations on LA 485 between I-49 and LA 6. The locations of the soil boring explorations require that one lane of LA 485 be closed temporarily to perform the work. The lane closure will be conducted in general accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and a flagger will be provided for traffic control. This work is expected to take about 2 weeks.

The contractor will be required to maintain thru traffic at all times, but periodic lane closures and delays can be expected. The public is advised to remain alert to construction signs and changing roadway conditions.

Permit/Detour Section
Thru traffic will be maintained and there will be no detour routes for this project.

Safety Reminder
DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
