The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning Monday, August 6, construction will begin on a $2.5 million project to construct a roundabout at the intersection of LA 347 and Doyle Melancon, in St. Martin Parish.

The work is estimated to take place Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weather permitting.

There will be intermittent lane closures throughout the project with no delays expected. The road will be open to regular traffic with a 12-foot lane restriction on oversized loads passing through the work zone.

North Doyle Melancon Road, Dup Boulevard, Dom Boulevard, LA 347, and South Doyle Melancon Road may be used as alternate routes. Detour signs will be posted.

Roundabouts are one-way, circular intersections designed to improve safety and efficiency for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Roundabouts reduce crashes by decreasing stop-and-go traffic.

The project is estimated for completion in June, 2019.

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.
