There will be nightly closures of one lane of traffic this week on the westbound side of Interstate Ten.

DOTD officials say the westbound lane of Interstate Ten at the overpass at Louisiana Avenue will be closed through this Friday, August 4.

Crews will need to remove some barrier rails.

This phase of work will also include closing some sections of the Louisiana Avenue Overpass.

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, crews will be removing some of the sections of the Louisiana Avenue Overpass so there will be closures on both side of Louisiana Avenue.

The work, scheduled from 8 p.m. through 6 a.m. the following morning, will see the closure of Louisiana Avenue under the I-10 overpass.

There will be detours for both sides of Louisiana Avenue, and they are as follows:

  • Northbound: Take I-10 eastbound to LA 328, then back to I-10 westbound to continue north on Louisiana Avenue.
  • Southbound: Take I-10 westbound to I-49, then back to I-10 eastbound to Louisiana Avenue to continue south.
