The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that beginning Friday, February 16, the traffic signals at the eastbound and westbound US 90 ramps at LA 318 in St. Mary Parish, will be removed, as part of the on-going LA 318 interchange project.

Once removed, motorists traveling on LA 318 will have the right of way while traffic on the eastbound and westbound US 90 ramps will have to stop. Stop and Stop Ahead signs will be installed upon removal of the traffic signals in order to advise motorists approaching LA 318 from the US 90 ramps that a stop is required.

Portable message boards will be installed 7 days prior to signal removal and stop sign installation.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds motorists to please drive with caution and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.

DOTD apologizes for any inconvenience this necessary work may cause.

As part of the Geaux South program, current work underway is related to the $56 million design-build project that involves upgrading the existing US 90 and LA 318 signalized intersection to a full control of access, grade-separated interchange including the reconstruction of the US 90 frontage roads to provide local access to LA 318. Construction began in March 2016, and is estimated for completion in Spring 2018.
