UPDATE: Alternate routes for the I-210 project- Calcasieu Parish

Due to bridge weight restrictions, there are changes to the previously announced alternate routes for the project.

The alternate routes for passenger vehicles and trucks 25 tons and less are I-10, LA 12 and US 190. LA 12 and US 190 can be accessed via LA 109, LA 27, US 171, or US 165.

For trucks greater than 25 tons the alternate routes are I-10, US 190 and LA 12. US 190 and LA 12 can be accessed from the east via US 165 and US 171.

Additionally, vehicles over 11 ft. wide may not travel through the work zone.

Significant delays are to be expected for the duration of the project, with special consideration being given to the first week to 10 days of the new pattern. This is expected as drivers typically find a route that is more acceptable to their needs. Motorist should anticipate greater traffic impacts the first few days of the project as travelers adjust to the reduced lanes.
