Original notification (8/23):

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that motorists can expect a traffic shift on I-10 eastbound from west of the LA 108 interchange to the I-210 interchange during the evening of Wednesday, August 25, 2021.

The I-10 eastbound travel lanes will shift to the newly constructed lanes on the mainline, and will return to three lanes of traffic for the majority of the work zone. In this new phase, the right lanes in advance of the LA 108 and I-210 interchanges will be exit only. The through lane on the eastbound service road at LA 108 will be closed for construction access.

Alternating lane closures on I-10 eastbound from LA 108 to I-210 will be required to stripe the new lanes. Lane closures will occur Wednesday, August 25 and Thursday, August 26 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.

Work continues on the median barrier, milling, overlay, guardrail, and drainage. The contractor has completed the replacement of both Maple Fork Bridges and widening of the mainline. All dates and activity are weather dependent. The entire project is expected to be complete in fall 2021.

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