IBERIA PARISH, La. - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning Monday, August 22, construction will begin on a $4.8 million project on La. 88 from Snapper Road to New Horizon Drive, and on Fremin Road at its west junction with La. 88.

A new segment of La. 88 will be constructed in an existing agriculture field that will bypass the existing portion of La. 88 from Coteau Park Rdoad to New Horizons Drive. This project will include base course, asphalt pavement, ditch cleaning, drainage structures, utility relocation, and related work.

Work is estimated to take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.

There will be alternating lanes closures throughout this project. The road will be open to regular traffic with a 12-foot maximum lane restriction on oversized loads passing through the work zone.

Emergency vehicles will have access to this area.

The project is estimated for completion by summer of 2023.

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.
