BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -

Drilling equipment will arrive Wednesday at the site of the sink hole in Assumption Parish.

State Police will escort the 25 oversized loads from Bosco in Acadia Parish beginning at 7 a.m. via I-10 East.  The escort is planning to exit at LA Highway 1 in Plaquemine, then continue to Pierre Part.

Troopers are expecting traffic jams on I-10 between Lafayette and the Mississippi River Bridge.

The equipment is needed to drill an exploratory well.
