PORT ALLEN, La. (BRPROUD) – Work continues on the new diversion roads close to the LA 1 Intracoastal Bridge and it might affect your commute for awhile.

Specifically, “Southbound LA-1 near the Intracoastal will have nightly alternating left and right lane closures and Northbound LA-1 near the Intracoastal will have nightly left lane closures,” according to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.

When are these closures taking place?

The closures are scheduled to run from Friday, September 30 until Sunday, October 30.

They will begin at 7 p.m. each night and end the following morning at 4 a.m.

DOTD says, “The lane closures are needed to perform subgrade prep, base course prep, and asphalt paving for the new diversion roads to the new Southbound LA-1 Bridge.”

Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development would like to ask everyone to take their time when driving through construction zones like this one.
