LULING, La. — Construction is progressing on southbound I-310 between LA 48 in Destrehan and LA 18 in Luling.

Currently, the right lane is closed while crews patch the concrete deck along the Hale Boggs Bridge. When patching is complete in the southbound right lane, work will move to the southbound left lane. After that, work will start on the northbound deck.

In all, roadwork will continue in this area through May, weather permitting.

Tentative schedule for lane closures:

January 23 – March 2 – Southbound Outside (Right) Lane Closure (5 weeks)

March 3 – March 21 – Southbound Inside (Left) Lane Closure (3 weeks)

March 21 – April 25 – Northbound Outside (Right) Lane Closure (5 weeks)
