Sheriff Craig Webre announced LA Highway 308 will be CLOSED for a vessel launch at Bollinger Shipyards in Lockport from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 15. Southbound traffic should detour to LA Highway 1 via the Bollinger Bridge (a.k.a. Bellvue Bridge) in Lockport, and northbound traffic should detour to LA 1 via the T-Bois Lift Bridge in Larose.
Please note LA 308 will ONLY be closed at Bollinger Shipyards, and local traffic will be permitted up to the road closure. Message boards will be deployed near the detour points advising drivers of the closure and suggested detour route, and deputies will be present and prepared to assist with traffic flow if necessary.
Drivers are also reminded that LA 1 is currently closed at the West Larose Lift Bridge requiring all drivers to travel along the LA 308 overpass to cross the Intracoastal Waterway. This combination of closures could cause delays around the time of the closure and immediately after. Drivers are, therefore, asked to avoid this area around the time of Thursday’s road closure if possible.
Sheriff Webre appreciates your patience and reminds everyone to please drive with caution around any road closure.
