Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre is asking citizens to primarily use LA 308 for traveling in Lafourche Parish. This will allow first responders, utility workers, and other essential personnel to utilize LA 1.
The only exception is a temporary road closure of LA 308 from U.S. Highway 90 to the Champagne-Harrelson Memorial Bridge due to Entergy working on utility lines in that area. This along with several other factors has created a bottleneck on LA 1 near U.S. Highway 90. To avoid this bottleneck, residents returning to the South Lafourche area are encouraged to exit U.S. Highway 90 at LA 316 and then travel to LA 24 (Bourg-Larose Highway).
“We understand that people may need to travel on LA 1, but if you’re just passing through an area, please use LA 308 when possible,” said Sheriff Webre. “With gas being such a scarce commodity, the best thing citizens can do is conserve fuel by staying off the roads. We have more and more residents coming in, and traffic is going to increase. I understand people don’t necessarily want to stay home, but you’ll be faced with even more frustration on the highways.”
