The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces a project to improve a section of LA 154 in Bienville Parish.
The $5.8 million project will provide a patch, mill and overlay on a little over 10 miles of LA 154 from LA 793 to LA 507.
As part of that project, a cross drain pipe is being replaced, and a closure of LA 154 beginning on Monday, October 31, 2022 will be necessary. That closure is anticipated to last approximately four days.
The closure will be located approximately 6.25 miles east (north) of the LA 507 junction.
Following the pipe replacement, the contractor will patch designated areas of the roadway, then remove the top layer of asphalt (milling), and overlay with a new driving surface.
Intermittent lane closures may be necessary as work progresses, but through traffic will be primarily maintained through the use of flagging operations.
The entire project is anticipated to wrap up in early Spring 2023, with progress dependent on weather conditions and other factors that may impact construction activity.
Alternate Route: Detour signage will be in place for pipe replacement closure.
This work will be performed WEATHER PERMITTING.
DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.
