St. John the Baptist Parish - Construction of the drainage project on LA 3188 (Belle Terre Blvd.) in Laplace is currently on hold due to the relocation of a private utility line, according to the Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD).
DOTD officials are working closely with the contractor and private utility company to relocate the line by September 4, 2017 at the latest so that construction may resume.
St. John Parish officials are also monitoring the project and in discussion with all parties to move the project forward as quickly as possible. Please remember to drive slowly in the area and be on the lookout for work crews, signs, and equipment. Intermittent lane closures on Belle Terre Blvd. will be in effect for the duration of the project.
