Louisiana DOTD Prepared for Possible Wintry Weather

I-10 Weather | I-10 Exit Guide

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) staff is preparing to respond in the event of adverse weather. Forecasts call for freezing temperatures with the possibility of wintry precipitation in some areas of the state this coming weekend.

DOTD will have crews out scouting the roadways and bridges and will be prepared to respond, if necessary.

Supply inventories and equipment have been checked, and crews will be available to monitor bridges and elevated sections of roadways when safe to do so in order to perform emergency winter weather operations, such as applying de-icing materials, as necessary. In addition, DOTD will continue to closely monitor the forecast and remain in close contact with the National Weather Service.

DOTD is prepared to close bridges and elevated sections of roadway that are deemed unpassable. Motorists are advised to be aware that some bridges and roadways may become unsafe for travel before a closure notice is issued and should take responsibility to drive accordingly.

Drivers should not be on the roadway during hazardous driving conditions.
