BAYOU CORNE - Ten trucks hauling parts of a exploratory well are making their way to Bayou Corne, and could impact some traffic in our area.

State Police said the trucks are coming from Scott, La., and will take several routes, including I-10.

They will travel east on I-10 to LA 1, getting off at the Plaquemine exit, then turn south on LA 69. The load will continue south to LA 70 until it gets to the Texas Brine site.

The rig should be installed by the end of the week, and ready to start drilling by the end of the weekend.

News 2's Adrian Pittman, will have more on the arrival of the rig on News 2 at 6.
