Baton Rouge - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that crews will begin pile driving operations on I-10 over City Park Lakes beginning October 5, weather permitting. This work is necessary to allow the contractor to begin construction on the temporary trestle bridge across the lake in preparation for permanent work on the I-10 BR reconstruction and replacement widening project in Baton Rouge.

Operations will be conducted during daytime hours and traffic is not expected to be impacted during this time. This work will be ongoing through March 2024.

Once the widening project is completed, there will be four travel lanes in each direction from the I-10/I-110 interchange to Acadian Thruway. For more information about the I-10 project, visit I10br.com.

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