Repairs to restrict I-12 traffic

SLIDELL, La. (AP) - St. Tammany Parish officials say one lane of Interstate 12 in Slidell near the intersection of Interstate 10 and Interstate 59 will close for repairs beginning Monday.

Officials said a contractor will be patching the lane between the Robert Road overpass and the I-10/I-59 junction from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The work is expected to be completed by Friday morning.

Officials said one lane should be open for traffic at all times.
