Drilling equipment to be delivered Wednesday


Drilling equipment will arrive Wednesday at the site of the sink hole in Assumption Parish.

State Police will escort the 25 oversized loads from Bosco in Acadia Parish beginning at 7 a.m. via I-10 East.  The escort is planning to exit at LA Highway 1 in Plaquemine, then continue to Pierre Part.

Troopers are expecting traffic jams on I-10 between Lafayette and the Mississippi River Bridge.

The equipment is needed to drill an exploratory well.
