Portion of Tammany Trace to Close for a Prolonged Period as I-12 Widening Project Proceeds


The widening of I-12 is currently underway. This is a significant infrastructure project through the DOTD in partnership with St. Tammany Parish Government. The safety of St. Tammany citizens while this project proceeds is paramount, and as such, as part of this project, a portion of the Tammany Trace in Mandeville will close beginning Monday, October 19, 2020, from the southern edge of the Little Creek bridge — to the northern edge of the Koop Drive Loop — approximately 560 feet. This closure is expected to last until June 2022 due to the construction overhead as well as equipment staging. Patrons will have access to the Tammany Trace at Dove Park, and at the Koop Drive Trailhead, however, there will be no access between these two points on the Trace. 

Trace patrons are asked to be aware of this closure. Any changes will be updated through our websites:, and Thank you for your patience and understanding.
