DOTD to begin rehabilitation project on Atchafalaya Basin Bridge
ST. MARTIN PARISH - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has announced plans for a rehabilitation project to replace the existing bridge deck surface on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge in St. Martin Parish from the Whiskey Bay exit to mile marker 125.
The contractor, Gibson & Associates, will mill the existing deck surface and replace it with a modified latex concrete pavement.
A portion of the bridge deck was damaged following a multi-vehicle crash involving a vehicle fire in August 2019 that caused spalling to occur, resulting in some of the surface concrete to crack and flake off. The bridge was deemed structurally sound after a thorough inspection.
Construction is set to begin Jan. 17 and is anticipated to be completed Jan. 27, weather permitting.
There will be a single lane closure on I-10 westbound during the weekends from 9 p.m. on Fridays to 6 a.m. on Mondays.
Motorists are encouraged to use a detour route using LA 415 to U.S. 190 to I-49 back to I-10.
