Lake Charles, Louisiana – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has announced an upcoming roadwork project that will result in an alternating and intermittent lane closure on I-10 Westbound in Lake Charles. The closure will affect both the left and right lanes and will take place from Sunday, December 10, 2023, at 8:00 PM to Monday, December 11, 2023, at 5:00 AM.
This roadwork is necessary to improve the safety and functionality of the roadway, and motorists are advised to plan their travel accordingly.
