The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says a stretch of I-12 will be closed for roadwork this weekend.

Weather permitting, the freeway's eastbound lanes will be shut down from Essen Lane to College Drive from 9 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday.

"During the closure, motorists traveling I-12 eastbound are advised to use the I-10 eastbound at LA 3064 (Essen Lane) exit and travel northbound on LA 3064 to the I-12 eastbound on-ramp," said DOTD.

The agency says crews are removing the outside edge of the I-10 westbound overpass bridge deck in a process called accelerated bridge construction, allowing the deck to be removed in one piece and disassembled on the ground. DOTD says the method will allow them to avoid a longer stretch of road closures.
