Beginning on Friday, June 9, at 9 p.m. both eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 will be closed where it intersects with US 61 in Ascension Parish near Sorrento. The lanes will be closed through Monday, June 12, at 5 a.m., weather permitting, to install the repaired deck span section of the bridge for the westbound onramp from US 61 to I-10 weather permitting. 

The suggested detour requires motorists traveling eastbound to exit onto US Hwy 61. They can then proceed to LA 641 to get back to I-10 as shown in the attached detour map. 

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
