Closure notice announced by DOTD at highly trafficked crossover

A highly trafficked crossover point in Larose will be closed, beginning January 9, 2020.

DOTD announced that the median crossover near Rouses on La. Highway 3235 at La. Highway 657, or West 15th Street, between the northbound and southbound lanes of La. Highway 3235, will be closed to traffic until approximately late May.

According to the release, the work is going to begin at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9, and the estimated re-opening point will be May 30, 2020.

Traffic will be able to crossover at the median cuts located approximately 600 feet to the north of 1,600 feet to the south of the crossover.

The closure is needed to allow DOTD’s contractor to remove the existing pavement and install new drainage and channelized turning movements. 

DOTD urges drivers to proceed with caution near the crossover and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.l
