Road Temporarily Closed


     LA DOTD has informed us of a road closure that is to take place next week. We are giving the information to you early so you may prepare for this closure.

The Message from DOTD is as follows:

Tuesday, July 25, 2023 2:42 PM

Allen Parish - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that US 190 near Mile Post 69 (0.7 miles east of the Calcasieu River Bridge) will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, July 31, 2023, for emergency bridge repairs.

The bridge closure is necessary following a recent load rating analysis, which indicated structurally deficient piles. This forced the capacity of the bridge to be reduced to 10-15 tons.

Crews will work daily until the repairs are completed, weather permitting.

Vehicle traffic is advised to detour using US 165, Interstate 10, and US 171.

Safety reminder:
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.
Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction. 
Take care and exercise caution, GOD BLESS!!
