DOTD BRIDGE CLOSURE NOTICE- WEST LAROSE LIFT BRIDGE (INTRACOASTAL BRIDGE ON LA 1):

According to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), the West Larose Vertical Lift Span Bridge (aka the Intracoastal Bridge on LA 1 in Larose) will be closed to vehicular traffic as follows:

Continuously closed 24/7 through 5:00 pm on Friday, July 28, 2017

This extension to the current closure is necessary for crews to remove and replace bridge lift span structural steel and tower bearings, remove and replace bridge guardrail, placement of epoxy concrete overlay on approaches and lift span, and installation of traffic striping and pavement markings. Closures are subject to change due to weather conditions.

Alternate route(s) during closure times are as follows:

• Northbound: LA 1 across the New Larose Vertical Lift Bridge to LA 308 north
• Southbound: LA 1 across the Belle Vue Swing Bridge (LA 3220) south of Lockport or the T-Bois Vertical Lift Bridge just north of Larose to LA 308 south.

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.


BRIDGE CLOSURE NOTICE – GALLIANO PONTOON BRIDGE:

According to Lafourche Parish Government, the Galliano Pontoon Bridge crossing Bayou Lafourche is closed to vehicle traffic beginning November 28, 2016, for approximately 120 days; however, the project is behind schedule and will continue until complete. This closure is due to the demolition and reconstruction of the Louisiana Highway 1 approach to the bridge.

During this time, traffic on Louisiana Highway 1 will be reduced to one lane with traffic control on site.

Alternate routes during the closure are the South Lafourche Tarpon Lift Bridge to the north or the Golden Meadow Lift Bridge to the south.
