LA 1 Road Closure in Leeville area set for Saturday

LA 1 Road Closure in Leeville area set for Saturday

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that a portion of Louisiana Highway 1 in Leeville will have intermittent road closures on Saturday, January 17, due to Entergy Transmission utility work.

LA 1, directly north of the Leeville Bridge near the toll plaza, will be closed to vehicular traffic for 20-minute intervals from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on this date.

The closure is required in order to allow Entergy Transmission to erect electrical conductor wires between two electrical poles located on each side of the toll plaza on the Leeville Bridge. After LA 1 is closed and one conductor wire has been erected, the roadway will be opened back up to traffic to allow all traffic waiting to cross over the bridge at this location.

After traffic has been cleared at the toll plaza location, the roadway will be closed again to traffic for another 20-minute interval to erect the next conductor wire.

There are no alternate routes available for crossing the Leeville Bridge during this time period.
