EBR Roadwork starting July 7

There will be intermittent lane closures on Lee Drive from Boone Avenue to Blue Bell Drive beginning Monday and extending through Aug. 1.

Both lanes of through traffic will be kept open between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and at least one lane will remain open for traffic at all other times except for a five-day stretch during which both lanes on a section of Lee Drive will be closed.

Both lanes of Lee Drive between Boone Avenue and Bennett Drive will be closed to through traffic from July 18 until July 22.

The closure is for construction work associated with the city-parish’s Sanitary Sewer Overflow program, which aims to reduce sewer backups and protect the environment from sewage.

During the road closures, the city-parish encourages drivers to use Stanford Avenue as an alternate route.
