This work is related to the FASTLANE I-10 widening project. The $124.7 million I-10 widening project will involve widening a 7.11-mile section from I-49 to Breaux Bridge. The project will include pavement replacement within the existing lanes and the construction of one additional lane in each direction along I-10 from I-49 to La 328 (Breaux Bridge).

With the help of the FASTLANE grant, this is the first of three projects to reconstruct and widen the I-10 corridor from I-49 to the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.

Awarded to James Construction, this project will begin in May 2017 and is estimated for completion in fall 2019.
