DOTD crews have begun installing bridge deck joint seals and striping the roadway on I-10 in both directions from Exit 103 (I-49) to Exit 109 (LA 328). This has caused nightly lane closures that will continue until Tuesday, August 24th. No detour route is necessary.

The I-10 Widening Project is scheduled to end during the summer of 2021. It is widening a 7.11-mile section of the interstate from its interchange at I-49 to Breaux Bridge. Workers have been replacing pavement within the existing lanes and constructing an additional lane in each direction along the aforementioned section of Interstate 10.
