ROAD CONSTRUCTION NOTICE- LA 1 ASPHALT OVERLAY PROJECT TO CAUSE INTERMITTENT DELAYS:
The Greater Lafourche Port Commission was made aware of an LADOTD-led road construction project beginning on August 17 that will affect tenants and users of Port Fourchon.
The section of LA 1 that will be affected at the onset of this project is from the Leeville Bridge to the intersection of LA 3235, continuing down LA 1 before ending at Falgout Lane in Golden Meadow.
The contractor started on August 17 with pavement patching and will continue with additional improvements such as drainage work and an asphalt overlay.
DOTD said the plan as of now is to work from 7 AM to 7PM Monday through Saturday until Spring 2021.
Expect travel delays during this construction work, with intermittent lane closures and some delay in traffic movements through the construction area, especially during the paving phase of the project later this year.
Please use caution when traveling through the construction area and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment. Thank you for your patience during this scheduled road improvement project.
