The left lane on U.S. 167 South is temporarily closed between Georgia and Carolina avenues for a Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development project where drainage pipe is being installed underneath the ground. Matt Jantz, DOTD project engineer assistant, said after work is complete, there should be no flooding on the street when it rains. Jantz said, weather permitting, work is slated to wrap up in early March. Jantz estimates it will be at least January before both lanes on U.S. 167 reopen. When work is complete, the sidewalk in the area will be replaced.
