ST. CHARLES PARISH, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development continues work on the $24.5 million project to replace the Interstate 310/Luling (Hale Boggs) Bridge deck and perform repairs.

Beginning on Feb. 14 at 8 p.m., the two northbound lanes of I-310 will be detoured onto the southbound span of I-310. There will still be one lane available for travel on southbound I-310. With the detouring of the northbound traffic, the entrance ramp from La. 18 to I-310 North will be closed. Motorists wishing to enter I-310 North from La. 18 may access via La. 3127 or U.S. 90.

In addition to the lane detour, the exit ramp from I-310 North to La. 48 will be closed. In order to reach La. 48 from I-310 North, it is recommended that motorists exit at U.S. 61 to take La. 50 or La. 626.

This phase of construction is expected to last until mid-April 2016.

The project involves removing and replacing the deck of the bridge and will include minor maintenance repairs. The contractor, C.E.C., Inc., will perform the work designed to preserve the structure and improve the roadway surface. The project is estimated for completion by mid-June 2016.

All planned construction activities are weather-dependent and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to drive with caution through this and other highway work zones. Also, be alert for the presence of construction workers and equipment.
