DOTD continues lane closures this week on Interstate 10 from the Louisiana-Texas line all the way through St. Martin Parish.


As part of the I-10 Widening Project, there will be nightly lane closures happening Wednesday and Thursday night as  DOTD crews will be working on the asphalt.

  • The entrance ramp of I-10 eastbound at I-49 (Lafayette) will be closed from 8 PM - 6 AM EACH NIGHT.
  • The I-10 eastbound exit ramp at Exit 109 - LA 328 (Breaux Bridge) will be closed from 8 PM - 6 AM EACH NIGHT. DETOUR for traffic is to take I-10 Eastbound to Exit 115 (LA 347 exit ramp), LA 347 to I-10 Westbound, and I-10 Westbound to Exit 109 (LA 328).
  • I-10 eastbound between mile marker 116.5 and mile marker 117 (Atchafalaya Basin Bridge) will have an inside lane closure on Thursday night from 8 PM - 6 AM as workers install a sign bracket on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. There will be no detour necessary.

The I-10 Widening Project is scheduled to end during the summer of 2021. It is widening a 7.11-mile section of the interstate from its interchange at I-49 to Breaux Bridge. Workers have been replacing pavement within the existing lanes and constructing an additional lane in each direction along the aforementioned section of Interstate 10.
