TERREBONNE PARISH, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces a closure and the resumption of work on a $1 million overlay project at La. 311/312 from La. 182 to La. 24 to now include sewer work for Terrebonne Parish.

La. 312 (also known as Lafayette Street) from High Street to Bond Street (also known as Tunnel Boulevard) will be closed continuously for nine weeks starting Wednesday August 9, 2017, at 7:00 a.m., thru October 10, 2017. The right lane of Bond St. (also known as Tunnel Blvd.) will be closed at Lafayette St., with a merging taper starting at Church Street. The intersections of both Point Street and Academy Street, with Lafayette St., will be closed to westbound thru traffic.

This closure to vehicular traffic is needed in order to allow DOTD contractor Barriere Construction, LLC to perform parish sanitary sewer improvements and patch the existing roadway prior to an asphalt overlay.

Alternate routes available around the La. 312 (Lafayette St.) closure(s) are as follows:

  • Northbound traffic on Lafayette St. will be detoured west to Canal Street.
  • Southbound traffic on Lafayette St. will be detoured west to Barataria Avenue.
  • Westbound traffic on Academy St. and Point St. will be detoured to Grinage Street.
All planned construction activities may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather or special events. DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to drive with caution through this and other highway work zones. Also, be alert for the presence of construction workers and equipment.
