INTERMITTENT LANE CLOSURES: LA 789 near LA 169, south Caddo Parish

The Louisiana Department of Transportation advises motorists that intermittent lane closures will begin soon as part of a project to repair LA 789 in south Caddo Parish.

Work is set to begin in early October 2022.

The $2.7 million project stretches on LA 789 from LA 169 to Preston Road, which is just north of the DeSoto Parish line.

The project will provide a mill and asphalt overlay, along with clearing and grubbing, drainage structures, pavement patching, and other related work.

Traffic along LA 789 will be maintained through the use of flagging operations so motorists should be aware of the possibility of slow-moving vehicles while construction activity is ongoing.

The entire project is anticipated to be complete in Spring 2023, with progress dependent on weather conditions and other factors.

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.

Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.
