November Holiday Travel

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development’s Secretary, Shawn D. Wilson, Ph.D., announced that oversize and overweight vehicle movement on all state highways will be prohibited on Thursday, Nov. 24, through Sunday, Nov. 27 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The prohibition does not apply to the Secretary’s Sept. 2 waiver order for debris removal or the Secretary’s Nov. 22 waiver order for housing units and mobile classrooms that authorizes specific routes for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Wilson said the decision was made in conjunction with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety, Office of State Police, to provide maximum safety for motorists traveling on State highways during this holiday.

The Truck Permit Office will be closed Thanksgiving Day, November 24, and Friday, November 25, 2016.
