Web Comment: The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on November 12th, 2014 construction will force the closure of site #2 on LA 1236 in Winn Parish. This work will begin at the intersection of US167 and LA 1236 then proceed approximately 5 miles ending at the intersection of LA 1236 and LA34. The intent of this project is to replace four timber bridges with reinforced concrete bridges. On Wednesday November 12th, 2014 the second bridge site coming from the US 167 Side of LA 1236 will be closed and a critical step in the construction of that site will begin. Traffic coming from the east side of the bridge will be detoured to LA 34, and traffic coming from the west side of the bridge detoured West onto LA 126 in Dodson and then South down LA 34. As construction continues other sites will be closed to remove bridges, but only one site will be closed at a time, allowing traffic access to all sections of the road. The project was awarded to the low bidder, W.E. McDonald and Son, LLC. in the amount of $3,663,553.19 The work associated with this project should take approximately 365 working days to complete. Permit/Detour section Thru traffic will be not be maintained at the individual closed site under construction. Detours include US167 and LA34 at each end of the project. Safety Reminder DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
