Street Closure: Hwy. 120 from Sabine Parish line to Hwy. 6 in Robeline

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, (DOTD), advises the public that, weather permitting, on Monday, April 17 construction will begin on LA 120 in Natchitoches Parish. This work will begin at the Sabine Parish line and proceed southeast along LA 120 to its intersection with LA 6 in Robeline.

The intent of this project is to replace existing drainage structures, cut an in-place cement treated subgrade and base course, apply lime treatment to the subgrade, and then place 6 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 $10,781,403.79. The work associated with this project should take approximately 190 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.
