Posted at 12:49 PM, Dec 10, 2021

Hospital Drive in the area of Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center will be closed for several days starting next week.

Ochsner officials say the closure is necessary "as we continue to make progress on the expansion of Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center." The flow of traffic, primarily around Hospital Drive, will be interrupted for about 10 days during the work.

The closure will begin on Sunday, December 12, to thru traffic through Wednesday, December 22. During the closure, the ER entrance will be accessible from Girard Park drive to Hospital Dr. There will also be limited access to the medical offices located along the road.

Patients will still be able to access physicians' offices by going through the parking lot at the corner of Hospital Drive and Coolidge Drive, which is located across the street from Burdin Riehl.
