The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) advises the public that effective immediately the bridge (multi-barrel corrugated metal pipe) on 8 Mile Loop, just to the east of I-49, approximately 0.6 miles from the junction of LA 504 is closed to all traffic. Due to the uncertainty and complexity of the repairs, the length of time required to complete the repairs is undetermined at this time.
There is no detour for this closure.
DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
Motorists can access the latest updates on real-time traffic and road conditions using the 511 Traveler Information System by dialing 511 from their telephone and saying the route or region on which they are seeking information.
