4:30 p.m. Message from DOTD (UNRELATED TO SINKHOLE)

There will be lane closures from LA Highway 69 from LA Highway 70 to the Iberville Parish Line starting on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 through Sunday, August 25, 2013. The closures will take place from 7:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. each day. These closures are needed for crews to install new asphalt surfacing on LA Highway 69.


The LA Highway 1008 @ Bayou Lafourche bridge (BRIDGE AT RED LIGHT NEAR COURHOUSE) will be closed across entire length of bridge Friday, August 23rd from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. while DOTD crews perform an inspection of the bridge.

This closure will not allow any vehicles to pass through the construction zone. Vehicles must detour using LA Highway 1 North to the LA Highway 402 Bayou Lafourche Bridge (near Assumption Community Hospital)

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.

The parish will send reminders next week specific to these road closures.
