Grand Ecore Bridge Closure Update
Friday, July 01, 2011 at 3:18:26 PM

La. 6 at the Grand Ecore Bridge will be completely closed beginning Tuesday, July 5, at 11:30 p.m. until Wednesday, July 6, at 4:30 a.m. to allow to remove and relocate temporary barrier rail, perform necessary grinding and lay striping.

One lane of La. 6 at the Grand Ecore Bridge will open to traffic with a pilot truck escort for the remainder of the day until work is completed. All lanes of traffic will then open at approximately 4 a.m. to 6 p.m., and will return to one-lane piloted traffic during the working hours over the next 3 to 4 weeks.

Oversize loads will not be allowed to pass through the construction zone and must detour using La. 1.

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.
