I-12 backup

Northbound traffic on Walker South Road is backed up over Interstate 12 last fall during work on the roundabouts.

WALKER – The Interstate 12 roundabouts on Walker South Road will have alternating closures next week, according to the state Department of Transportation and Development.

Both roundabouts will have closures from 8 p.m. Monday, April 22, through 5 a.m. Tuesday, April 23, from Pendarvis Lane to Graham Lane, according to Kris Wascom, project engineer with the DOTD District 62 office in Hammond.

This closure will allow crews to do asphalt work on the roadway, Wascom said.

At least one lane will remain open at all times, he said.

Southbound motorists may use Florida Boulevard (U.S. 190) to Juban Road) to I-12 as an alternate route.
