One lane of Interstate 10 Westbound will be closed this evening for repairs.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is reporting I-10 westbound will be reduced to one lane of traffic between the Lobdell (LA 415) and Grosse Tete (LA 77) exits.

The lane closure is scheduled to take place from Monday at 7 p.m. to Tuesday at 6 a.m.

The DOTD suggests motorists consider using an alternate route, such as LA 415 North to US 190 West to I-49 South to I-10 West.

Drivers are reminded to drive with caution and be on the look out for work crews and their equipment.
