I-12 WB left lane from LA 447 to Satsuma Rd. will be closed on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 through Friday, March 6, 2015 from 8:00 pm - 6:00 am (weather permitting). One lane will remain open in each direction at all times. This lane closure will allow crews to reposition the concrete barriers. Also, I-12 WB Exit Ramp #15, LA 447 in Walker, will be closed on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 from 8:00 pm - 6:00 am (weather permitting). This closure will allow crews to reposition the concrete barriers. Motorists traveling westbound may exit I-12 via Exit #22 at LA 63 or Exit #12 at LA 1026. Motorists may take US 190 as an alternate route to avoid nightly lane closures during construction.
Work is underway to widen I-12 to six lanes from Walker South Road to west of the Satsuma Road interchange. Most of the work is taking place in the median, but drivers may encounter periodic lane closures between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Please drive carefully and obey the lower posted speed limit.
Work continues to widen four I-12 bridges between Satsuma Road and the LA 43 interchange. This includes the bridges at Hornsby Creek, Colyell Creek, Big Branch Creek, and Blood River. Drivers will encounter narrowed travel lanes and lane shifts. Please drive carefully and obey the lower posted speed limit.
Widening work is complete between the I-10/12 junction and Highland Road. Drivers may experience periodic lane closures or travel delays for maintenance and/or repair work.
