OUACHITA PARISH, La. — (5/3/19) The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that eastbound lanes on I-20 at the Stella Mill Street exit in Ouachita Parish were partially closed overnight but scheduled to be reopened at 7:00 a.m. as part of an ongoing bridge rehabilitation project.

However, the contractor encountered mechanical issues with a piece of equipment used to prepare the road for overlay. There was also a delay in pouring concrete due to rain.

The contractor is facing a monetary penalty for lane closures after 7:00 a.m., and is expected to have all lanes reopened by 11:00 a.m. today, Friday, May 3, 2019.

DOTD apologizes for the inconvenience, and is working ensure all lanes are reopened as quickly as possible.
