Baton Rouge, La- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces temporary changes to College Drive and Corporate Boulevard from the I-10 westbound exit. These changes are part of the ongoing efforts to improve the infrastructure and traffic flow as part of the College Drive Flyover project.

Beginning Saturday, June 15, the right slip lane at the end of the exit ramp that bypasses the traffic signal and allows drivers to access Corporate Boulevard and northbound College Drive will be closed. This closure is necessary for crews to rebuild and improve the interchange.

A new temporary right turn lane will be opened at the College Drive exit traffic signal. This right turn lane will allow drivers to access Corporate Boulevard and northbound College Drive. The updated traffic signal will feature two dedicated left turn lanes and one dedicated right turn lane. Additionally, a second lane will be opened on the I-10 exit ramp to help traffic flow.

Once completed, the reconstructed exit will provide drivers with improved access to Corporate Boulevard and College Drive. The temporary closure is estimated to last through the summer. All construction activities are weather dependent and are subject to change.

Safety reminder:
DOTD appreciates your patience and we would like to remind drivers to exercise caution and drive with care through construction sites. Please be mindful of work crews and their equipment, and adhere to all posted signage and speed limits.
