******Road Closure Information******

Date: 1/16/2013

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has OPENED the northbound and southbound lanes of I-49 from LA 526 (Bert Kouns, Exit 199) to I-20, in Caddo Parish.

The DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds motorists during winter weather conditions, the best thing you can do is drive slowly and carefully, and avoid driving while distracted. Always allow for extra driving time, reduce speeds when visibility is low, and make sure there is plenty of room between vehicles. Also, look out for black ice, which can form on bridges, overpasses, off-ramps and in shady spots. As always, DOTD reminds motorists to buckle up and refrain from drinking and driving.

Citizens can get the latest updates on real-time traffic and road conditions by using the 511 Traveler Information System simply by dialing 511 from their telephone and saying the route or region about which they are seeking information. Travelers can also access this information by visiting the 511 Traveler Information Web site at www.511la.org.
