Road or Lane Status: LA 478

ROAD-lane closed

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on Monday, June 18, construction will begin on LA 478 in Natchitoches Parish. This work will begin at the intersection of LA 120 and proceed Northeast for approximately 3.5 Miles to the interchange with I-49.

The intent of this project is to replace existing cross drains, cold plane the existing asphalt pavement, cut a 12” in-place cement treated base and subgrade, and lay 3 ½” of Superpave Asphaltic Concrete. Associated work includes seeding, replacing mailboxes, and permanent thermoplastic striping.

The contractor will be required to maintain thru traffic at all times, but periodic lane closures and delays can be expected. The public is advised to remain alert to construction signs and changing roadway conditions.

The project was awarded to the low bidder, Diamond B Construction Co. LLC, in the amount of $1,237,786.75. The work associated with this project should take approximately 45 working days to complete.
