LAFAYETTE, LA - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning June 15, 2021, construction will begin on a $14 million project to install a median cable barrier system on a 41.11 -mile section of I-10 from the Jeff Davis/Acadia parish line to the I-49 overpass in Lafayette Parish.

The project will include grading, drainage structures, high tension cable barriers, concrete mowing strips and related work.

The work is scheduled to have day and night time operations. The daytime work is scheduled to take place from 6am – 8pm in the median and will not restrict any travel lanes.

Night work with intermittent inside lane and shoulder closures, both eastbound and westbound, will take place during the following times:

  • Sunday – Thursday: 8pm – 6am
  • Friday: 9pm – 9am
  • Saturday: 8pm – 10am

Drivers can expect delays due to the night lane closures. These closures are necessary to allow crews to install the high tension cable barrier system along the edge of interstate.

There will be no vehicle width restriction associated with this work.

Emergency vehicles will have access to this area, but may encounter delays.

The project is estimated to be complete in winter 2022.

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.
