The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will be closing a portion of Highway 182 between Highways 90 and 96 for several hours tonight for bridge construction.

Highway 182 (Cade Highway) will be closed between the HWY 90 overpass and HWY 96 starting at 8 o'clock tonight through 6 o'clock Wednesday morning.

DOTD apologizes for driving inconveniences, and they ask drivers to look out for equipment and the workers in that area.

This bridge construction is part of the Geaux South program to widen US Highway 90 to six lanes.

When the entire project is completed, Highway 90 will be six lanes between Albertson's Parkway to just north of the intersection at Ambassador Caffery Parkway.

Other aspects of the project include the following:

  • A new railroad overpass
  • Modifying adjacent frontage roads
  • An overpass along US 90 above Albertson's Parkway
