As if it weren't congested enough already, the route to the mall will be even worse on Thursday. The outside southbound & northbound lanes of La 3073 (Ambassador Caffery) between Johnston Street and the Ambassador Caffery Bridge will be closed Thursday, December 13, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. for concrete slab repair.  And remember, the crews don't get to pick when and where they'll be working, so be nice and be on the lookout for workers and equipment.
