Jefferson Parish, La. - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that beginning on September 14 there will be lane closures associated with the construction on the Earhart Expressway exit ramp.

Southbound Clearview Blvd. (LA 3152) between Airline Drive (US 61) and Earhart Expressway (LA 3139) in Metairie will be closed on Friday September 14 at 9 p.m. to Monday, September 17 at 4 a.m. This complete road closure is necessary for work crews to perform bridge repair work.

The advised alternate route for motorists to use to avoid the closure is either Airline Drive (US 61) or Earhart Expressway (LA 3139) to Dickory Ave. (LA 3154) to Earhart Expressway (LA 3139) to Clearview Parkway (LA 3152).

This $640,000 project began in mid-August and is estimated to be completed December 2018, weather dependent. The purpose of the project is to repair the structural damage on the exit ramp and install new girders and pour a new bridge deck.
