The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces the closure of the US 11 railroad overpass for essential maintenance work. The closure is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 24, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The maintenance work will include sweeping, striping, and the addition of raised pavement markers. These necessary improvements will ensure the safety and functionality of the overpass for all motorists.

During the closure, there will be intermittent 20-minute closures to allow for flagging traffic through between the different operations. This will minimize any inconvenience to drivers while still allowing for efficient completion of the maintenance work.

Motorists are advised to plan alternate routes during this time and to follow all posted detour signs.

Safety Reminder:
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.
