Wednesday morning commuters should expect delays on LA 1 for equipment hauling
PORT ALLEN - Drivers on the west side of the river should be prepared for heavy traffic Wednesday morning. Well, heavier than usual.
Parish officials say equipment will be transported southbound on LA 1 from Port Allen to Dow Chemical. From Dow, the equipment will go around LA 1 through Enterprise Blvd. back to LA 1 south of Plaquemine.
