Road / lane closures scheduled

Road / lane closures scheduled


One lane on LA 1, between Port Fourchon and Grand Isle, will be closed starting Tuesday, November 28, thru May 31, 2018 (during the hurricane off-season).

The closed lane will alternate throughout the construction of three bridges along LA 1. The traffic will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.

One lane will remain open at all times, but motorist should expect minor delays traveling thru the construction sites.

This closure is needed in order to allow LA DOTD’s contractor to remove and replace three fixed span bridges on LA 1.

Beginning at 7:00 a.m. Monday November 27, until January 1, 2018, the northbound roadway of LA 3235 from West 11th Street to LA 24 in Larose, will be closed to northbound traffic.

The southbound roadway of LA 3235 from LA 24 to West 11th Street will be reconfigured to accommodate both north and southbound thru traffic.

Northbound traffic on LA 3235 will be required to turn left onto the West 11th Street median crossover and then turn right back onto the LA 3235 southbound roadway, using the inside (median side) lane.

This roadway closure is required in order to allow South Lafourche Levee District (SLLD) contractors to elevate the hurricane protection levee across LA 3235 in Larose.
