Lane closures planned next week near 10/12 split as work continues on interstate flyover project
BATON ROUGE - There will be nightly lane closures on the interstate approaching the 10/12 split starting Monday and all throughout next week.
DOTD announced the single-lane closures on Thursday, which are necessary to let crews grind and restripe the interstate near the split.
It's the latest movement in the College Drive flyover project, which will create a new bridge for westbound traffic to exit onto College Drive without crossing mainline interstate traffic. State officials expect the $52 million project to wrap up in early 2024.
