Plan For Delays: I-10 Bridge Lane Closures Through December 8
If you need to be somewhere on time across the lake, you may wanna leave extra early. For the next few days, traffic is going to be backed up. Traffic in the city has already been an issue as more and more people hit the roadways to commute for work, vacation, or visit family for vacations. However, in the coming days congestion on I-10 is going to worsen due to inspections of the Calcasieu River Bridge.
Now through December 8, DOTD will perform routine bridge maintenance and inspections. Officials are advising motorists to be patient as several lanes will be closed during this process. All work is dependent on weather conditions. Motorists are urged to use I-210 as a detour route. The schedule for the I-10 lane closures is as follows:
Westbound Right lane - Friday, Dec. 3 - 8 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Westbound Right lane - Saturday, Dec. 4 and Sunday, Dec. 5 - 7 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Westbound Right lane - Monday, Dec. 6 and Tuesday, Dec. 7 - 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Eastbound Right lane - Wednesday, Dec. 8 and Friday, Dec. 10 - 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
