BATON ROUGE - Because of the magnitude of special events surrounding Super Bowl and a full slate of parades associated with New Orleans' carnival season, state transportation officials say they are suspending lane closures on all bridges, freeways, expressways and arterial roadways near those activities.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the suspension will be in place form 8 a.m. Friday through 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13.

The department said Wednesday construction activity will continue and shoulder closures will be allowed during the affected time period. But, it says, the traffic will be monitored to ensure delays next to open traffic lanes are not excessive.
