Hwy 90 Update: One Lane Closed July 3 And July 8

DOTD announces lane closure on U.S. 90 for shoulder work
BROUSSARD, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced today that U.S. 90 westbound will be reduced to one lane on Wednesday, July 3, and Monday, July 8, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., in order to allow crews to perform shoulder work. The closure will take place on U.S. 90 between Ambassador Caffery Parkway and the Billeaud overpass, weather permitting.
Permit loads are restricted to 16 feet in width, and emergency vehicles will have access to the area.  No detour is necessary for this work.
The work being performed during this closure is related to the $4.9 million project to install j-turns on U.S. 90 between the Billeaud Overpass and Wall Road.  The J-turn design will safely and efficiently manage traffic and eliminate left-turn and through movements from side roads and driveways into crossovers. All vehicles will be required to turn right and then U-turn at a median opening down the road.
Approximately 40,000 drivers a day travel on this portion of U.S. 90. Work on this four-mile project began in November 2012 and should be completed by fall 2013.
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.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) is committed to delivering transportation and public works systems that enhance the quality of life. In addition to more than 16,600 miles of roadway, including over 930 miles of interstate and 13,000 bridges, DOTD supports the development of the state’s aviation, marine and rail infrastructures. Through this work, we are able to facilitate economic development, create job opportunities, improve vital evacuation routes, and make critical freight corridors safer and more efficient.
