BATON ROUGE, LA — Interstate 12 eastbound will be closed at the O’Neal Lane interchange from 8:00 p.m. Saturday, March 31, and the closure will last approximately 12 hours. The closure is necessary to allow construction crews to safely pour concrete on the O’Neal overpass.
Also, O’Neal Lane north and southbound will be closed under the I-12 overpass. All westbound lanes of I-12 will remain open during this time.
Eastbound traffic on I-12 will be routed off the interstate via the O’Neal Lane off-ramp, and then back onto the interstate via the O’Neal Lane on-ramp.
To detour this area completely, drivers on I-12 may exit at Millerville Road (Exit 6) and travel north to Old Hammond Highway. Turn right onto Old Hammond Highway and travel east to Florida Boulevard. Turn right onto Florida Boulevard and travel east to Range Avenue. Turn right onto Range Avenue and travel south to re-connect with I-12.
Motorists on O’Neal Lane may detour the closure under I-12 by using Millerville Road via Florida Boulevard or South Harrells Ferry Road.
