LAFAYETTE PARISH

As part of the I-10 Widening Project, there will be nightly lane closures happening over the next week beginning on Thursday night at 8 PM. DOTD crews will be installing new asphalt and performing work on the bridges.

The NIGHTLY lane closures will happen in BOTH DIRECTIONS from Exit 103 (I-49) to Exit 109 (LA 328) in St. Martin Parish from 8 PM to 6 AM until Saturday, June 12.

There will be no detour route necessary.

The I-10 Widening Project is scheduled to end during the summer of 2021. It is widening a 7.11-mile section of the interstate from its interchange at I-49 to Breaux Bridge. Workers have been replacing pavement within the existing lanes and constructing an additional lane in each direction along the aforementioned section of Interstate 10.

And both projects are weather permitting.
