road sign

Road work resumes Wednesday night on Florida Boulevard.

DENHAM SPRINGS – Motorists using Florida Boulevard between Walker and Denham Springs will face nightly lane closures beginning Wednesday through Saturday.

The state Department of Transportation and Development said both eastbound and westbound lanes face intermittent closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The closures are required for work crews to continue asphalt operations on Florida Boulevard, said Kris Wascom, project engineer with the DOTD District 62 office in Hammond.   

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

To avoid the construction zone, motorists can use Interstate 12 as an alternate route, he said.
