LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The I-210 bridge construction has officially begun, according to the Department of Transportation and Development’s public information officer Tammy York.

Barricades were set out and police posts have been set up in the westbound lanes of I-210 on the bridge.

Due to unforeseen repair work on the I-10 bridge, DOTD is coordinating with both contractors to minimize the impact for motorists traveling eastbound, said DOTD. I-210 eastbound closures will be limited until the I-10 repair work is complete. Following the completion of the I-10 work, I-210 eastbound will be reduced to one lane 24/7.

I-210 westbound will be closed from 9 p.m. until 4 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights beginning tomorrow, Jan. 8.
