The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced Friday that all major construction work for E. 70th St. from Fern Ave. to Line Ave. has been completed.

You can expect short-term single lane closures over the next month as crews continue cleanup efforts and wrap up minor work.

The project which began in April 2013 widened and resurfaced the eastbound and westbound lanes of E. 70th between Fern Ave. and Creswell Rd. and constructed a center turn lane.

In addition, the crews resurfaced the existing roadway from Creswell Rd. to Line Ave.
