BATON ROUGE – The inside lane on I-10 west from the Mississippi River Bridge to the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge will be closed starting Friday afternoon.

According to DOTD, the second week of closures will start at 6:30 p.m. Friday and will last until 6 a.m. Monday morning. Traffic officials say the closure is needed for asphalt rehabilitation.

DOTD officials explained this is a rolling lane closure, and that parts on the stretch of I-10 will be closed sporadically throughout the weekend.

Drivers are urged to avoid I-10 west between Baton Rouge and Lafayette and use US 190 as an alternate route.
