The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced Friday bid results for several projects planned around the state. Nine contractors presented apparently low bids totaling $10.9 million.

"As this year comes to a close, we're proud to announce several more projects around the state that will be starting shortly," DOTD Secretary Shawn D. Wilson said. "2020 has been a trying year for everybody, so we're glad to end it on a positive note for Louisiana's citizens."

Several of the projects are planned for the Acadiana area:

Bridge Replacement and Repair:

  • Replacement of Rouge Bayou Bridge on LA 360 in St. Landry Parish - $2,648,611.99
  • Grading, milling, patching, widening, and overly on U.S. 90 between LA 14 and LA 397 in Calcasieu Parish - $1,320,467.11

Congestion Mitigation and Safety:

  • Raised pavement markers on I-10 between Jefferson Davis Parish line and I-49 in Acadia and Lafayette Parishes - $331,822.00


  • Mermentau River boat ramp replacement on U.S. 90 in Acadia Parish - $575,211.00

Construction projects are prioritized by road/bridge condition, urgency of improvements, type/volume of traffic, crash records, unforeseeable emergencies that caused damage, and several other factors.
