DOTD to widen intersection of Hwys. 431, 429

Staff reports

Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development crews recently began work to widen the intersection of Hwy. 431 and Hwy. 429, according to a release from the agency.

Officials said that Hwy. 431 will be widened on both sides to accommodate new northbound and southbound left-turn lanes. A new signal will also be installed at the intersection to accommodate the new turns.

All work on the project will be performed on weekdays between 7 a.m.  and 5 p.m. Lane closures will occur periodically during work hours, but one lane will remain open at all times throughout the project.

The project is set to be completed by Oct. 3, weather permitting.
