It will be a busy upcoming week (December 11-15) for Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development workers as crews will be performing all sorts of repairs on Interstate 10 - including the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge - and on the Evangeline Thruway in Lafayette all the way down US Highway 90 to St. Mary Parish.
The Atchafalaya Basin Bridge on Interstate 10 will once again be the focus of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development this week as a multiple of lane closures are scheduled leading up to and on the bridge itself.
LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) - Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development officials are asking drivers to use an alternate route as an emergency bridge inspection will cause crews to implement a traffic closure on the Interstate 10 Atchafalaya Basin Bridge on Monday afternoon...
Senate President Page Cortez's bill would mean that drivers who cross the bridge in less than 18 minutes could receive a speeding ticket in the mail, basing the ticket on how fast it takes a vehicle to get from one end of the bridge to the other instead of the miles per hour the vehicle was traveling.
