A portion of Louisiana Highway 450 will be closed to traffic in both directions in early August.

On Monday, Aug. 2, through Monday, Aug. 16, there will be a full road closure of Highway 450 from Louisiana Highway 16 to Louisiana Highway 10, for a Department of Transportation and Development work crew to install a box culvert, weather permitting.

Alternate routes are recommended, where possible.

Motorists wishing to travel north on Highway 450 should detour by taking Highway 16 east to Louisiana Highway 25 north to Highway 10 west back to Highway 450. Motorists wishing to travel south on Highway 450 should detour by taking Highway 10 east to Highway 25 south to Highway 16 west back to Highway 450.

Emergency vehicles will not have access at the box culvert location, and oversized vehicles will not be permitted during this time.

The DOTD appreciates citizens’ patience and reminds motorists to drive with caution through the construction site, and to be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
