Monday, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development began $2 million in work on U.S. Highway 61 (Airline Highway) from Labarre Road to Transcontinental Boulevard.

Work began with replacing concrete sidewalks and  handicap ramps.  The work will require the right lane to be closed from 7:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. through Friday, May 24th.

The project stretches about two miles and will also include the application of new asphalt on the road according to the DOTD.
