I-10/Causeway Boulevard interchange special holiday traffic notice
State Project No. 450-15-0100
Causeway Blvd. Interchange
In an effort to reduce traffic/economic impacts near Lakeside Shopping Center during the upcoming holiday shopping season, we are making some traffic modifications on the I-10/Causeway interchange project. These modifications were the result of a meeting with Jefferson Parish, Jefferson Parish Sherriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police.
The changes begin Friday, Nov. 27, and will last for the holiday shopping season.
The changes in the traffic pattern will be:
North Causeway Blvd. U-turn (south of Veterans Blvd.) to South Causeway will be closed by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office during heavy traffic periods.
Ground level North Causeway traffic (not using Veterans overpass): The existing shopping center entrance near Macy’s /Restoration Hardware/ Pottery Barn will remain open to motorists, traffic continuing north after this point will be directed to go past 17th St. and allowed to U-turn north of 17th St. to return via South Causeway.
We also want to remind and encourage drivers to use the Bonnabel and Clearview exits from I-10 as alternate routes to access the shopping center.
The DOTD Transportation Management Center and Motorists Assistance Patrol Service, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police will be continuously monitoring the situation and are prepared to respond as necessary.
We also will be placing additional variable message signs at several locations to alert motorists to be extra careful and to expect delays in this area.
