BATON ROUGE - The state has announced a series of road closures related to the I-10 widening project which will affect traffic along the 10/12 corridor throughout Baton Rouge.

The closures will not impact the interstate itself, but visible work will be going on in the shoulders of I-10, I-12 and I-110 at various points.

The closures on Dalrymple Drive are for crews to put the finishing touches on staging equipment before they begin constructing a trestle bridge along I-10 West in City Park Lake. The trestle bridge will aid crews during the I-10 widening work to build a new permanent City Park Lake bridge, with work on that beginning later this year. 

According to a spokesperson for DOTD, the shoulder closures are for crews to install new digital message boards and will not last long.
