JACKSON — The state Department of Transportation and Development closed Line Road on Monday at its intersection with La. 10 in East Feliciana Parish because of road work, a department news release says.

The intersection is scheduled to reopen by 3 p.m. Tuesday, the release says.

The elevation differences between the roadways in the intersection prompted the closure at 9 a.m. Monday.

The traffic flow on La. 10 is being maintained while the work proceeds.

A contractor for the state is widening La. 10 east of Jackson.

Traffic using Line Road will be rerouted to La. 955.
