CALCASIEU PARISH, La. - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that motorists can expect a traffic shift on La. 12 at the Mud Lake Bridge, Hursey Slough Bridge and Ashworth Slough Bridge near the Texas state line, beginning Tuesday, Aug 30.

Traffic on the bridges will shift to the newly constructed detour route. A lane closure will be set up, placing single lane, signal-controlled traffic on the detour bridge. This will allow the contractor to move traffic safely and place all necessary barriers prior to having both lanes open on the detour bridge. Once all traffic is shifted, the existing bridge will close for replacement.

The entire project is anticipated to be complete in mid 2023. All dates and activity are weather dependent.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with extreme caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
