Information and video about the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development $45.5 million I-10 improvement project in Sulphur that started in January 2020.

The project will widen I-10 eastbound and westbound to four lanes between LA 108 and I-210, which will create an axillary lane between the interchanges. The Maple Fork Bridges will be replaced and raised above the 100-year flood elevation. The concrete sections west of Maple Fork Bridge will be fully reconstructed and replaced, and the existing asphalt pavement east of the Maple Fork Bridge will be milled and overlaid.

Motorists are advised that I-10 eastbound and westbound from west of the LA 108 interchange to the I-210 interchange will continue to be reduced two lanes, and the speed limit has been reduced to 50 mph through the work zone.

Construction work began in January 2020 and is anticipated to be complete in Summer 2021 with progress dependent on weather.

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.
