The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development reduced traffic by one lane yesterday on US Highway 190 in Eunice.

DOTD officials closed the right lane on the westbound side of US 190 between Ninth and Tenth Streets because the roadway needs emergency repairs.

Officials say no detours are necessary in that area, and that they are hoping the work will be done by this Thursday, February 23.

There will be work crews and equipment to be on the lookout for during the work.
