The Atchafalaya I-10 Welcome Center near Breaux Bridge has been closed for repairs and renovation for a period of time.  The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development now says the Center and rest area are now open with the exception of the north restroom.

According to the DOTD crews installed a new sewer plant, generator, and water supply tank. The north restroom will remain closed until all repairs are completed. The parking area north of I-10 will have sidewalk access to the south restroom facilities.

No drinking water is available at this time and a boil advisory is in effect at the center.

DOTD advises drivers to drive cautiously and be aware of construction workers and their equipment.
