2:35 p.m. - There is congestion on I-10 East from Mile Marker 129 (Atchafalaya Basin Bridge) to Mile Marker 132 due to an earlier incident that has cleared. 


  • LA 73 (Jefferson Hwy.) will have one lane closed in the southbound direction from 7666 Jefferson Hwy. to McCarrol Dr. from 8 p.m., Friday May 19 until 5 a.m. on Wednesday, May 24. This closure is necessary for utility repair operations. There are no detours necessary and there are no width restrictions.
  • I-12 East and I-12 West from three miles west of Livingston (LA 63) to Albany (LA 43) will have a moving operation on Monday, May 22, 2017 from 9 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (weather permitting). This operation is to allow equipment to be moved around the job site. Drivers may take US 190 as an alternate route to avoid this operation.

  • I-12, 1 mile west of Satsuma – 0.5 miles east of Satsuma, will be under construction beginning Monday, May 1. This project will widen I-12 from four lanes to six lanes, from 0.5 miles west of Satsuma to the Satsuma Interchange Ramps. This work is expected to be completed in January of 2018. Drivers should be prepared for intermittent delays and possible nightly single lane closures (eastbound and westbound) between the hours of 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Saturday. These lane closures are necessary to allow crews to widen the existing roadway to the inside in order to add travel lanes. The road is open for regular traffic, but over-sized vehicles and loads will be under permit restrictions. Vehicles up to 16 feet wide will be allowed to pass through the construction zone. Motorists may take US 190 as an alternate route to avoid nightly lane closures during construction.
