Construction to begin on I-49 in Natchitoches Parish

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on Friday, July, 27 construction will begin on I-49 in Natchitoches Parish. This work will be located in the northbound and south bound lanes of I-49 between ½ mile south of its interchange with LA 120 and 1 mile south of its interchange with LA 485.

The intent of this project is to replace all existing pavement striping and reflectorized raised pavement markers within the described project limits.

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

The project was awarded to the low bidder, Highway Graphics LLC, in the amount of $623,950. The work associated with this project should take approximately 45 working days to complete.

Permit/Detour section
