TRAFFIC UPDATE: US 167 (Pineville Expressway) project, Rapides Parish

The Louisiana Department Transportation and Development advises motorists that beginning on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 5:00 p.m., weather permitting, the LA 3144 (Edgewood Drive) exit and entrance ramps on US 167 northbound in Rapides Parish will be opened to traffic.

Additionally, the northbound outside lane of US 167 will be opened.

The northbound inside lane of US 167 will then be closed from the Donahue Ferry Road overpass to US 165 following the opening of the northbound outside lane and ramps.

In order to help alleviate congestion and delays, all truck traffic is encouraged to avoid utilizing US 167 between I-49 and US 165 and to seek an alternate route when possible.

Permit/Detour Section:

There will be a 12’ lane restriction on US 167 associated with these lane closures.

Safety reminder:

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.
