road sign

DENHAM SPRINGS -- A section of La. 16 north of Denham Springs will have intermittent lane closures from Tuesday through Saturday, according to the state Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD).

The lane closures for crews to patch and seal the roadway is from Fairlane Drive – near Lea’s Tire & Automotive – north to the Lockhart-Magnolia Beach Road (La. 64) intersection, according to Darrick Berner, project engineer with the DOTD District 62 office in Hammond.

From Tuesday through Thursday, Sept. 10-12, the closures will be from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Berner said.

On Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13-14, the closures will be from 8 p.m. to 9 a.m.

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

To avoid the construction zone, Berner said motorists can take the following routes:

• Northbound motorists can take Florida Boulevard east to Burgess Avenue (La. 1027), then go north to Lockhart Road and west to La. 16.

• Southbound motorists can take Lockhart Road east to Burgess Avenue, then go south to Florida Boulevard and west to La. 16.
