New 'J-turns' on US 190 in Livonia near completion
LIVONIA - The Department of Transportation and Development says the project to install 'J-turns' on US 190 in Pointe Coupee Parish should be completed by the end of the year.
The project will replace an existing guardrail stretching from LA 1 to Krotz Springs while adding in three 'J-turns' near Livonia. The project is part of an effort to cut down on serious and sometimes deadly crashes on the highway.
The roadway will also see a shoulder extension to better accommodate 18-wheelers.
LA DOTD says it expects to have the project completed this December.
