Metairie, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning Monday, August 14, 2023, construction will start on an $870,000 reconstruction project of a ¾ mile section of Dickory Avenue (LA 3154) between Earhart Expressway (LA 3139) and Airline Hwy.

The project includes concrete patching, striping, removing and replacing guardrails, a northbound left turn lane extension from Dickory onto Airline, and related work.
