A portion of Highway 182 on the westbound side will be closed today due to the ongoing work to widen Highway 90 in Broussard.

The work will take place between 8 o'clock this morning and 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Highway 182 on the westbound side will be closed from the Billeaud Overpass to about 500 feet passed the overpass.

Department of Transportation officials say they will have flagging crews in place to help with the traffic in that area.

DOTD also says there will be no restrictions to oversized loads.

 

 

The widening project of Highway 90  is expected to be finished by the summer months of 2018.
