I-210 Bridge Construction Detour Routes for 2019 Work in Lake Charles
LADOTD has announced that repair work on the I-210 Prien Lake Bridge is estimated to begin Monday, January 7
Due to the compressed construction schedule, construction work and lane closures will begin in phase 1. I-210 Prien Lake eastbound and westbound bridges (MP 1-3) will be reduced to one lane in each direction during the day. Westbound will have a full closure Monday through Thursday nights from 9 p.m. – 4 a.m. Lane closures will be necessary to allow space for the contractor to work.
Significant delays are to be expected on I-10 through Sulphur, Lake Charles, and Westlake for the duration of the project. Significant delays are also expected on I-210 in Lake Charles. There may also be delays on other major roadways in the area between the hours of 5 a.m. – 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. due to workers commuting to and from work.
Local traffic can detour via Highways 378, 379, and 171 through Westlake, Moss Bluff, and Lake Charles.
Other alternate routes are listed below:
Passenger vehicles and trucks 25 tons and less can use LA 12 and US 190. LA 12 and US 190 can be accessed via LA 109, LA 27, US 171, or US 165.
Trucks greater than 25 tons can use US 190 and LA 12. US 190 and LA 12 can be accessed from the east via US 165 and US 171.
I-10 can also be used as a detour route, but expect possible delays.
Additionally, vehicles over 11 ft. wide may not travel through the work zone.
