Portion of Hwy. 308 in Raceland to close this week

Portion of Hwy. 308 in Raceland to close this week

According to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LaDOTD), the stretch of LA 308, approximately five miles north of the intersection of the LA 182 Bayou Lafourche Bridge Crossing in Raceland, will be closed to motorists starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 3, through 3 p.m. Thursday, June 4.

The closure is necessary in order to allow the LaDOTD’s contractor to remove and replace the existing asphalt concrete roadway where the 30” X 60’ cross-drain pipe was replaced under an emergency contract.
The LaDOTD suggests the following alternate routes:

LA 308 Northbound Traffic from Raceland: Take LA 308 northbound to LA 182 (bridge crossing) in Raceland. After arriving at the bridge crossing, take LA 1 northbound to the St. Charles Street bridge (Gobears Market) in the St. Charles community, then take LA 308 northbound to Thibodaux.

LA 308 Southbound Traffic from Thibodaux: Take LA 308 southbound to the St. Charles Street bridge (Gobears Market) in St. Charles. After arriving at this bridge, take LA 1 southbound to Raceland, then take LA 182 (bridge crossing) in Raceland to LA 308 southbound to Lockport.

The LaDOTD appreciates your patience and reminds everyone to please drive cautiously through the detour area described above.
