The inside lane of U.S. 190 Eastbound at the Amite River Bridge will be closed periodically from Wednesday, Feb. 17, through Wednesday, March 31, from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily. The closure is being put in place to allow crews to deliver materials to the project site.
In addition, the outside lane of U.S. 190 Eastbound at the Amite River Bridge will be closed Wednesday, Feb. 17 through Friday, Feb. 19 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily to allow crews to make repairs to the temporary travel lane.
Both lanes will not be closed at the same time. The contractor will maintain one lane of traffic at all times.
This closure will allow vehicles up to 11 feet wide to pass through the construction zone. The road is open for regular traffic but oversize vehicles and loads are still under permit restrictions. Drivers may use I-12 as an alternate route.
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.
