The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning January 1, 2018, construction will begin on a $5.97 million project on US 71 in St. Landry Parish from LA 10 to the Avoyelles Parish line.

The work is estimated to take place daily, weather permitting.

The road will be open to regular traffic with a 14-foot lane restriction on oversized loads passing through the work zone.

The project will include removing two inches of roadway and shoulder surfacing, soil cement treatment and stabilization to shoulders, asphalt surfacing to roadway and shoulders, removal and replacement of one box culvert crossing along US 71 and reconfiguration of the raised concrete islands at LA 10.

The project is estimated for completion in August 2018.

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.
