SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development plans to release details Thursday about a new project to widen Interstate 12 from North Shore/Airport Road to Highway 11 in St. Tammany Parish.

According to a news release from state highway officials, the improvements will cost approximately $20.6 million.

The project will widen 2.4 miles of Interstate 12 from North Shore/Airport Rd. to U.S. 11 by adding a travel lane in both directions (eastbound and westbound).

The project is designed to improve capacity in the corridor, which is often congested during peak travel hours.
