The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that, weather permitting, on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 at 8:00am, the entrance ramp onto I-49 south located on US 167 south will be closed temporarily. This temporary lane closure is expected to last approximately 3 hours.

This construction project consists of sign replacements and related work.

This contract was awarded to Highway Safety Systems LLC in the amount of $2,109,152.25.

Permit/Detour Section
The entrance ramp will be closed to all traffic for the duration mentioned above.

The detour is as follows:
South bound traffic on US 167 attempting to enter onto I-49 south will travel south on US 167 and by pass the current entrance ramp. This traffic will then continue south on US 167 and make a U – turn onto US 167 north. From there, proceed north on US 167 onto the I-49 south bound entrance ramp for this lane.

The detour route will be identified with temporary construction signage. All emergency agencies will be notified of the lane closure.

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.
