Traffic Reminder: Permanent Pavement Markings Being Installed On I-10
DOTD crews are currently installing permanent pavement markings on the stretch of Interstate 10 that passes through St. Martin Parish.
The construction is being done as a slow moving operation which will happen in the travel lanes of I-10 westbound and eastbound from mile marker 108 (1 mile before the Breaux Bridge exit) to mile marker 117 (2 miles after the Henderson/Cecilia exit). This will happen from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. The work was originally planned to happen last week and at night but was changed to the morning and daytime hours of this week because of expected inclement weather.
Because of how slow-moving the project will be, drivers can expect to encounter delays.
