There will be alternating lane closures on U.S. 190 westbound at the Amite River Bridge from Monday, March 21, to Saturday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

In addition, there will be alternating lane closures on U.S. 190 eastbound at the Amite River Bridge during the same period of time from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

One lane of traffic will be open in each direction at all times.

The closure is being put in place to allow crews to lay asphalt, and install pavement markings and rumble strips.

This closure will allow vehicles up to 11-feet-wide to pass through the construction zone. The road is open for regular traffic but oversize vehicles and loads are still under permit restrictions. Motorists may use I-12 as an alternate route.

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.
