I-210 Bridge Project Traffic Lanes Shift Work to Start Tonight, Tuesday, June 11, 2019

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that I-210 Prien Lake Bridge traffic will begin transitioning from the westbound bridge to the eastbound bridge starting tonight, Tuesday, June 11 at 9 p.m. Traffic will continue to be maintained with one lane in each direction during this phase with the exception of additional nighttime closures Monday through Thursday. This transition phase will return the eastbound travel lane to the eastbound bridge meaning the westbound bridge will no longer serve as two-way traffic. Westbound traffic will remain on the westbound bridge.

Once the transition is complete, traffic will be one lane in each direction on the eastbound bridge. This transition is expected to last for two weeks. All work is weather permitting.

The contractor will remove the concrete barriers on the westbound bridge then install the barriers on the eastbound bridge. This will allow for the upcoming two-way traffic on the eastbound bridge.

The alternate routes for passenger vehicles and trucks 25 tons and less are I-10, LA 12 and US 190. LA 12 and US 190 can be accessed via LA 109, LA 27, US 171, or US 165. For trucks greater than 25 tons the alternate routes are I-10, US 190 and LA 12. US 190 and LA 12 can be accessed from the east via US 165 and US 171. Vehicles over 11 ft. wide may not travel through the work zone.

Motorists are encouraged to use 511 and MyDOTD to get the latest on the project, its traffic delays, and the upcoming traffic shift. 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.
