The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) advises the public that Monday, Nov. 30, construction will begin on LA 1225 in Natchitoches Parish. This work will begin at the intersection of LA 1225 and US 71 and proceed northwest for 4.236 miles to the intersection of LA 1225 and LA 6 in Clarence.
The intent of this project is to replace existing drainage structures, apply in-place cement in the base and subgrade layers, apply lime treatment to the subgrade, and then place 3.5 inches of superpave asphaltic concrete, followed by permanent striping on the roadway and other related work.
The contractor will be required to maintain thru traffic at all times, but periodic lane closures and delays can be expected. The public is advised to remain alert to construction signs and changing roadway conditions.
The project was awarded to the low bidder, Madden Contracting Co., LLC, in the amount of $2,615,901.02. The work associated with this project should take approximately 50 working days to complete.
Thru traffic will be maintained at all times with oversize and emergency vehicles allowed passage. There will be no detour routes for this project.
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.
