LegalLaw247.com, August 16, 2013 ) BATON ROUGE, LA — Work began Wednesday night on a stretch of U.S. 190 in need of serious repair, and the project won’t be wrapped up until February 2014.
The project is an $8.7 million endeavor aimed at resurfacing the stretch of 190 near Mandeville, LA from I-12 to Louisiana 22. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development states the project will also add an auxiliary lane in the northbound direction between I-12 and Fairway Drive, and Fairway Drive and LA-22. A southbound lane will run between I-12 and Fairway Drive.
The construction is scheduled to be completed in the evening hours between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., so night-time interstate travelers should take extra precautionary measures during this time. Construction zones are a common cause of auto accidents because of changes in traffic patterns and narrowed lanes.
The area where the work will be done is a heavily traveled area which will be pared down to a single lane during the nightly work. Lane closures will alternate in order to accommodate 190’s normal flow of traffic, although delays are expected over the next few months of repairs.
If you or someone you love is injured in a construction zone car accident, the victim may be eligible for compensation based on their physical and mental pain and suffering. Contact Simien & Simien, LLC for a free review of your case at (800) 374-8422.
