     HAMMOND – The “Friendship Circle” segment of Western Avenue on the Southeastern Louisiana University campus will be temporarily closed for the next 7-10 days due to construction in the area. 

     Southeastern University Police said the east-west lane – or north side of the circle -- is currently closed. Once construction is completed on the north side, the west-east or south side lane will subsequently be closed.

     “Motorists are asked to use an alternate route during the construction,” said UPD Director Mike Prescott. “We would like to thank the community in advance for their cooperation and understanding.”
