The toll bridge at LA 1 in Leeville will be closed Monday for equipment upgrades

Heading to Fourchon Monday morning? You may want to leave a little earlier. According to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LaDOTD), the southbound left lane (the tag only lane) of the toll bridge at LA 1 in Leeville will be closed Monday, February 9, for equipment upgrades.
The closure should begin around 9 a.m. and could last up to 24 hours.

During this temporary closure, all “GeauxPass” traffic will need to pass through the right lane (cash or credit lane). Vehicles with GeauxPass Toll Tags will need to reduce speed in the smaller lane and should not stop at the toll booth. All cash and credit customers will still be required to stop at the toll booth pay as usual.
Large trucks transporting wide and oversized loads will be redirected to contraflow up the northbound lane by LaDOTD Traffic Control Staff.

Motorists should be prepared for intermittent delays and are encouraged to plan routes accordingly. They should also use caution during the lane closures and obey all signs and traffic control staff direction.

For more information, visit www.dotd.la.gov or call DOTD’s Customer Service Center at (225) 379-1232 or 1-877-4LADOTD (1-877-452-3683). Business hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Additionally, motorists can access up-to-date travel information by dialing 511 or by visiting www.511la.org.

Motorists heading to Fourchon or Grand Isle Monday should expect some delays as the southbound left lane will be closed for equipment upgrades.
