NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Construction along portions of I-10 West means some drivers will have to take a different way home when leaving the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the I-10 West on-ramp from West Stadium Drive (west side of the dome) will be closed for the next 2-4 months. The closure only affects traffic leaving the Superdome.  

Drivers should expect delays as everyone gets accustomed to the new routes. SMG says it will work to get extra New Orleans Police officers to help handle traffic issues. 

The Superdome issued the following alternate routes:

If exiting from Garage 1:
·         Poydras St. -> LaSalle St. -> Tulane Ave. -> I-10 West at Carrollton Ave.
·         Poydras St. -> Baronne St. -> Calliope St. -> I-10 West.  
 
If exiting from Garage 2, Champions Garage, Lot 3 or Lot 3A:
·         Dave Dixon Dr. -> Loyola Ave. -> I-10 West. 
 
If exiting from Lot 4:
