JEANERETTE, La. - Beginning Friday, January 17, La. 671 (Canal Street) will be closed to through traffic to allow crews to continue construction work related to the Canal Street widening project. The closure will be located from La. 668 (East Admiral Doyle Drive) to La. 182 (Main Street) and it is estimated to last from 1 ½ to 2 years.
The detour consists of La. 668 (East Admiral Doyle) to La. 85 (Hubertville Road) to La. 182 (Main Street).
The $8 million Canal Street project involves widening a 1.5-mile stretch of roadway from two lanes to three lanes. In addition, the center lane on the new roadway will contain a two-way-left-turn lane.
