EVANGELINE PARISH, LA - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning Tuesday, April 2, 2024 construction will begin on an $8.5 million dollar project on La. 106 from La. 10 to La. 13 in Evangeline Parish.

This project will consist of milling asphaltic concrete, in-place base rehab, patching, asphalt overlay, rumble strips, and related work.

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

Intermittent lane closures will be required to perform the work, therefore, drivers should expect delays. 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 through this area.

The project is estimated for completion in January 2025.
