The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that today, June 27 at 9 a.m., La. 119 will be closed 1.1 miles north of the La. 1 junction at Derry. The closure is due to a slide that has encroached upon LADOTD right of way, from the adjacent owner, which is now threatening the integrity of the roadway. The roadway will remain closed indefinitely, until a project can be designed and constructed to fix the slide.
The roadway will be closed to all traffic. The detour is as follows.
Northbound traffic on LA 119 will detour on LA 1 north, to LA 493 north, back to LA 119.
Southbound traffic on LA 119 will detour on LA 493 south, to La 1 south, back to LA 119.
DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through all construction sites and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
