DOTD to start improvements on W. Bridge St.
Breaux Bridge – The state Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has awarded a construction contract for improvements to a portion of West Bridge Street in Breaux Bridge.
Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, Sept. 16 on the $248,000 project that affects just under two-tenths of a mile of the street from its intersection with Berard Street west to Railroad Street.
The work is estimated to take place on Mondays through Fridays from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weather permitting.
There will be intermittent lane closures to perform milling and asphalt overlays throughout the project. The road will be open to regular traffic with a 12-foot lane restriction on oversized loads passing through the work zone.
The project will include milling asphalt pavement, pavement patching, asphalt concrete overlay, handicap sidewalk ramp installation, and related work.
The project is estimated for completion in October.
