DOTD announces lane closure on U.S. 90 in Scott

SCOTT, La. -- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced today that beginning Monday, February 25, U.S. 90, in Scott, will be reduced to one lane for road construction between St. Mary Street and Westgate Road.

The work is expected to take approximately three months, weather-permitting.
