The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on Friday, March 2 construction will begin on LA 1-X (LA 1 Business) in Natchitoches. This work will begin 1500 feet north of the intersection of LA 1-X and the LA 1 Bypass and proceed north for 1.345 miles to the intersection of LA 1-X and Hancock Avenue, tying into the previous project on LA 1-X.
