LA 1 Expressway Intermittent Lane Closures Scheduled Nightly 10/16-10/23

October 16, 2023

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has announced that there will be intermittent southbound nightly lane closure(s) at the toll gantry from 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. from October 16-23, 2023. These brief closures are necessary to allow for work to be performed on the gantry electronic tolling system.

During these intermittent closures, vehicular traffic will be flagged through the northbound lane at the toll plaza.

 Also, the southbound lane at the Leeville Bridge Toll Plaza on LA 1 will be closed intermittently for 10 to 20 minutes at a time from 7:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. on the nights of October 18, 2023, to October 22, 2023, to allow the contractor to perform testing operations and adjustments to the overhead gantry electronic tolling equipment.

Permit loads traveling northbound or southbound will not be affected by this partial closure.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the work zone and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
