Some good news for people who drive on I-10 from Texas into Louisiana: the last 10 miles of widening in Calcasieu Parish will be completed in 2025... as part of this project, 10 bridges will be replaced and widened as well as rebuilding the weigh-in-motion on I-10 eastbound. The project is estimated at $152 million.

To maintain two lanes of traffic, the project is broken up into three separate segments, the first segment being from the state line to LA 109.

Ummm....isn't I-10 within the I-210 junctions in Lake Charles, including the Calcasieu River Bridge, still 4 lanes?

The video on the main website suggests 10 will be 3-laned through Lake Charles. I think it's about time to fix the area. That bridge has been through a lot.
