I-12 Walker now open

WALKER, LA (WAFB) - The interstate I-12 to Walker in Livingston Parish now has six lanes.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the completion of the nearly $22 million project between Juban Road and Walker South Road.

The next phase is to widen the interstate from Walker to near Satsuma. Construction will begin in February 2014, and it will take about a year to finish.
