Both lanes of LA Highway 1 are CLOSED from the Belle Vue Swing Bridge in Lockport (north) to the T-Bois Vertical Lift Bridge in Larose (south). The highway is expected to be closed through midnight tonight as Entergy crews work to clear the roadway of 10-12 power poles and lines which fell during a severe thunderstorm earlier today.
All vehicular traffic is being diverted to LA Highway 308. Motorists traveling along LA-1 should detour to LA-308 via the Belle Vue Swing Bridge on the north side (Lockport), or the T-Bois Vertical Lift Bridge on the south side (Larose).
LA Highway 308 had also been closed earlier this afternoon after a fallen tree caused total blockage of both lanes. The blockage was cleared shortly after 4:00 P.M., and all traffic is now being diverted to LA 308.
