Below are a list of traffic incidents and notices for Wednesday, April 26.

There are currently no major incidents to report.


  • US 190 (Florida Blvd. Service Rd.) will be closed at Shelby Dr. from 7 a.m. Friday, April 21 through 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 17. Traffic will be maintained throughout this closure, which is necessary for sewer improvement construction. There are no lane restrictions or detours necessary.  
  • I-10 East and I-10 West between the Ramah exit and LA 415 beginning Monday, April 24 through Thursday, April 27, will have alternating nightly lane closures from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. This closure is necessary for the construction of the I-10 cable barrier system.
  • Beginning Wednesday, April 26 through Thursday, April 27, LA 621 will have periodic lane closures and possible bridge closure to traffic between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day for bridge repairs at Black Bayou. The point of closure is 0.2 miles east of the intersection of LA 621 and LA 44. All lanes will be open to traffic outside of these daily times. Flaggers will be present. Eastbound LA 621 traffic may travel north on LA 44 for 1 mile to the junction of LA 931, east on LA 931 for 3 miles to the junction of LA 431, then 1 mile to the junction of LA 621. Westbound LA 621 traffic may travel north on LA 431 to the junction of LA 931, west on LA 931 to the junction of LA 44, then south on LA 44 to the junction of LA 621.
  • Beginning Friday, April 28 at 6:30 p.m. through Monday, May 1 at 6:30 a.m., the westbound inside lane will be closed on I-10 from the Mississippi River Bridge to the Atchafalaya Bridge. This closure is necessary for asphalt rehabilitation. Permit load restrictions will be up to 13 feet wide. Anything over should contact the permit office. 
  • I-12, 1 mile west of Satsuma – .5 miles east of Satsuma, will be under construction beginning Monday, May 1. This project will widen I-12 from 4 lanes to 6 lanes, from .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 oversized 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.
