The I-10 Atchafalaya Welcome Center is closed, effective immediately. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) along with the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism announced the closure today after a recent power outage left the facility inoperable.
The public will be able to access the parking areas during the closure, but will not be able to access the welcome center and restrooms as crews work to restore water service to the building.
Message boards have been activated along I-10 to notify drivers of the closure.
