LA 42 (Perkins Road) in Baton Rouge from the Dawson Creek Bridge to Essen Lane will be reduced to one lane of through traffic on Tuesday, October 27, from 8:00 p.m. to Wednesday, October 28, at 6:00 a.m. while crews work on new concrete paving. This will be one lane only eastbound and westbound Perkins. Traffic will be controlled by a flagger and pilot car one direction at a time.
This closure will allow vehicles 11-feet wide or smaller to pass through the construction zone. The road is open for regular traffic but oversize vehicles must detour using Highland Road.
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.
