Road Work: LA 1236

LA 1236; Winn Parish; S.P. H.008482; Control Section 864-09

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on Monday, March 30, 2015 construction will begin forcing the closure of site #4 on LA 1236 in Winn Parish. This work will begin at the intersection of US167 and LA 1236 then proceed approximately 5 miles, ending at the intersection of LA 1236 and LA34.

The intent of this project is to replace four timber bridges with reinforced concrete bridges. On Monday, March 30, 2015 the fourth bridge site coming from the US 167 Side of LA 1236 will be closed and the demolition of the bridge and construction of the new bridge at that site will begin. Traffic coming from the east side of the bridge will be detoured to LA 34, and traffic coming from the west side of the bridge detoured West onto LA 126 in Dodson and then South down LA 34. As construction continues other sites will be closed to remove bridges.

The project was awarded to the low bidder, W.E. McDonald and Son, LLC. in the amount of $3,663,553.19. The work associated with this project should take approximately 365 working days to complete.
