UPDATE: LA 577 near the Poverty Point World Heritage Site in West Carroll Parish is now back open to all traffic. Construction on the project is not complete. Intermittent lane closures will be needed to finish the roadway surfacing. It is anticipated that construction will be complete on the project within the next two weeks, weather permitting.
Beginning Wednesday, August 19, 2015, LA 577, approximately 0.7 miles north of the intersection with LA 134, near the Poverty Point World Heritage Site in West Carroll Parish will be temporarily closed. The road closure is needed to construct a new drainage structure and new asphaltic surfacing. This work is anticipated to continue for approximately 75 calendar days, weather permitting.
Detour routes will be signed and provided using LA 17 and LA 134 to guide traffic around the closure. These detour routes may be used by all traffic. Project Engineer: Matthew French
