INTERMITTENT LANE CLOSURES ON ELEVATED LA 1 EXPRESSWAY:
UPDATE: Citing concerns about extra traffic build-up, DOTD has agreed to suspend lane closures on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (July 25-27) leading up to the Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo weekend.
July 12, 2018 – DOTD announced construction work on the latest phase of the LA 1 Project will require intermittent lane closures at times on the northern portion of the elevated LA 1 Expressway in Leeville.
Beginning Monday, July 16, 2018, construction crews will be onsite weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Monday-Friday) working on the LA 1 Expressway from the LA 1 toll booth entrance ramp to the Leeville Bridge. For your safety, please be on the lookout for flaggers in this area.
This $13.25 million phase of the LA 1 Improvements Project will widen the intersection where the tollbooth connector meets the Leeville Bridge. It will also extend the expressway 400 feet north to create a new connector for future phases of elevated LA 1 roadway toward Golden Meadow.
Lane closures, when necessary, may cause minor delays in traffic movement through the construction area. These intermittent closures will allow vehicles 18 feet wide or smaller to pass through the construction zone. Vehicles over 18 feet wide must contact Mark Penny with James Construction Group, LLC at (225) 445-4018 to coordinate oversized loads through the construction zone.
LA 1 Improvements Project Phase 2E construction at the north intersection of the expressway should be complete by February 2020.
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.
