Interstate 10 Calcasieu River Bridge Maintenance Project Update
Wednesday, August 03, 2011 at 3:42:29 PM

The contractor is currently in the assembly phase of the project, 

which involves removing damaged pistols from the bridge’s handrails, 

creating rope access beneath the bridge, installing detour signs, 

mobilizing equipment and machinery to the bridge worksite and 

installing a paint work platform and construction matting.


We expect lane closures to begin August 10. One lane 

in each direction will be open at all times, with lane closures during 

the off-peak hours (outside of morning and afternoon rush hours).
