Construction to start on Jackson St. roundabout in Alexandria

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Construction is set to start soon on a roundabout at the intersection of Jackson St., Twin Bridges Rd. and Horseshoe Dr. in Alexandria.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) is spearheading the project. DOTD said they will start construction on the roundabout in early March. DOTD said the intersection will be completely closed during construction. They hope the project will be completed in the early summer.

Proponents of the project say it will help decongest that area during commute times.

The project costs around $1.8 million made up of mostly federal funding along with some state funds as well.

The detour route has yet to be determined at this time.
