EAST BATON ROUGE - If you're heading out of town this weekend, we have a traffic alert on I-12 to pass on to you. The DOTD says they're shutting two of three lanes on both I-12 eastbound and westbound from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. from Friday night to Sunday morning. The lanes from Drusilla to Millerville are being affected. The closure is happening so DOTD can work on pavement patching. One lane will be open at all times, but plan for delays.
