BATON ROUGE - DOTD announced there would be another traffic shift on I-10 westbound near the I-12 merge. 

This shift marks another milestone in the ongoing College Flyover project, DOTD said. 

Starting at 5 a.m. Wednesday, traffic will be shifted to the right starting at the I-12 eastbound exit. Construction crews will clearly mark all shifts with barricades and temporary road markings overnight on the night before. 

The next step in the project includes demolition of the old overpass, which will require an overnight full closure of I-12 EB sometime in May. Following the demolition, crews will rebuild the overpass higher and wider to match the adjacent flyover. 

Upon completion of the flyover project, I-12 westbound will be reconfigured to pass beneath the new overpass, running adjacent to I-12 eastbound traffic. A dedicated College Drive exit lane for I-12 westbound will merge with the I-10 westbound College Drive exit lane, forming a new exit ramp that will be separated from I-10 traffic. 

DOTD thanked drivers for their ongoing patience throughout the project.
