Road Construction on US-165 Both Directions from Henry Ave to US-425. Lanes Alternating. Starting 7/31/2023 12:00 AM
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that US 165 in PROJECT UPDATE: US 165 from Henry Ave to US 425 in Morehouse Parish The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises the public that the US 165 overlay project in the City of Bastrop, Morehouse Parish is moving forward and continues to make progress. The $5.5 million project stretches from Henry Avenue to US 425 South, providing reconstruction repairs to a little over 3 miles of busy roadway. To date, the contractor has completed patching the existing roadway subbase, an important step in the process because the subbase helps spread the vehicle load evenly as motorists drive over the pavement. The installation of the new asphalt surfacing is also complete. Currently, there are active lane closures in place throughout the project in order to safely install handicap sidewalk ramps, adjust manholes and catch basins that are located adjacent to or within the travel lanes. Once this work is done, the contractor will install permanent signage and striping, as well as pedestrian crosswalk facilities throughout the project. Work on the project began in April 2023, and is estimated to be complete in Spring 2024 (weather permitting), which coincides with the original timeline for the project. DOTD understands that construction projects can bring inconveniences and frustrations for motorists. But the goal is always to provide a high-quality product to the traveling public while also adhering to the construction schedule as closely as possible. We appreciate your patience while these necessary repairs are underway. Morehouse Parish will experience various lane closures beginning Monday, July 31, 2023. The lane closures will begin at the intersection of US 165 and Henry Avenue and continue to the intersection of US 165 (West Madison Avenue and West Jefferson Avenue) and US 425 South (South Washington Street). These lane closures are required to patch, mill,

Left Lane Closed
Road Construction on US-165 Both Directions from Pine Hill Cemetery Rd to LA-3258. Left Lane Closed. Starting 6/26/2023 6:30 AM
Jefferson Davis Parish – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that construction is set to begin on SP H.013255 US 165: 0.85 MI N I-10 – ALLEN P/L. This project will construct a J-turn intersection at US 165 and LA 101, which will consist of new turn lanes both Southbound and Northbound on US 165 at LA 101. Once construction is completed, the J-turn intersection at US 165 and LA 101 will function as shown in the image below. It will require LA 101 traffic at US 165 to make right turns only onto US 165 and then U-turn at the median openings down the road. Making the U-turn allows traffic to then access the opposing direction of US 165 and either remain on US 165 or turn right onto LA 101. The J-turn design will safely and efficiently manage traffic and eliminate left turns and through movements by LA 101 and Witherwax Road travelers. All vehicles traveling on LA 101 and approaching US 165 will be required to turn right and then, if desired, make a U-turn at a median opening down the road. Making the U-turn allows traffic to then access the opposite direction of US 165 and remain on US 165 or turn right onto LA 101. The project will also consist of patching, milling and overlaying the asphalt pavement on US 165 Southbound from the Allen Parish line to 0.85 miles north of I-10. Daytime closures: LA 101 Eastbound and Westbound crossover at US 165 will be daytime closures starting Monday, June 26, 2023. The left lanes of US 165 Southbound and US 165 Northbound, along with the left turn lanes at LA 101, will have daytime closures, starting Monday, June 26. 24-hour closure: These closures are necessary for the contractor to perform saw cutting along the existing US 165 shoulders. Once the shoulders are removed, these closures will be in effect 24 hours a day until construction at the US 165 and LA 101 intersection is complete. NOTE: The image below is for reference only to provide a better understanding of a J-turn intersection. Sa
