The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, (DOTD), advises the public that on Wednesday, April 22 construction will begin on LA 120 in Natchitoches Parish. This work will take place on the bridge located approximately 1.5 Miles West from the intersection of I-49 and LA 120 at the Bayou Julien Bridge.
The intent of this project is to remove timber trestle bridges, improve drainage structures, insert precast concrete piles, cast-in-place concrete slap span bridges, clear and grub, grading, apply in-place cement in the base and subgrade layers, apply lime treatment to the subgrade, and then apply asphalt concrete pavement followed by permanent striping on the roadway and other related work.
The public is advised to remain alert to construction signs and changing roadway conditions. LA 120 will remain closed at this location until further notice. This work is weather dependent.
The project was awarded to the low bidder, W.E. McDonald and Son, LLC, in the amount of $5,188,195.89.
All through traffic will be detoured. The detour route will be I-49 and LA 478.
