. You can also get traffic updates by dialing 511 from your phone.
East end of the La. 523 Widening Project:
Crews are installing traffic signals at two intersections, La. 1 and La. 3132.
Crews have also begun constructing permanent driveways for businesses and homes that tie in to the new roadway.
West end of the La. 523 Widening Project:
Crews have begun paving the La. 3132 interchange with La. 523. This process is scheduled to be completed by the end of March.
As crews progress with the paving between Ellerbe Road and La. 3132, crews will have to make at least one, possibly two, traffic shifts this month. As soon as crews complete this portion of the project, crews will begin building the three remaining lanes on the Pierre Bayou Bridge.
Traffic entering and exiting some streets, driveways, businesses and subdivisions will be temporarily inconvenienced while we work around driveways. If your business or residence has two entrances/exits, one entrance/exit will be closed temporarily during construction operations, but the other entrance will remain open allowing access to your business or residence. If your business has one entrance/exit, we will maintain traffic in and out of the business or residence while crews work across the driveway.
Motorists should expect delays, and we ask that you proceed through the project with caution. Be on the lookout for flaggers and construction traffic entering and exiting the highway, side streets and driveways.
All-above mentioned work schedules are subject to change due to adverse weather. Please see public notices for exact times, dates and cancellations.
