AMELIA, La. -- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced today that beginning Tuesday, March 19, U.S. 90 at Bayou Ramos Bridge, in St. Mary Parish, will have intermittent lane closures in the east and westbound directions in order for crews to perform repairs to the bridge.
