The I-210 construction may be here, but it's getting a slow start and the timetable will have to be pushed back for the finish of the project.

KPLC is reporting that, due to the unforeseen repairs that were needed on the I-10 bridge, DOTD is coordinating with both contractors to minimize traffic delays on both bridges.

The 210 bridge will be down to one lane in both directions beginning today. Tomorrow, the westbound side of the bridge will be closed from 9:00pm to 4:00pm Monday through Thursday nights.  After the repairs on the I-10 bridge are completed, the 210 bridge will be down to one lane 24/7.

To get live updates and access to traffic cams:

DOTD says if you want to avoid the I-210 bridge, use La. 12 or US 190 instead. You can access this route from La. 109, La. 27, US 171 or US 165.
