Drilling equipment will arrive Wednesday at the site of the sink hole in Assumption Parish.
State Police will escort the 25 oversized loads from Bosco in Acadia Parish beginning at 7 a.m. via I-10 East. The escort is planning to exit at LA Highway 1 in Plaquemine, then continue to Pierre Part.
Troopers are expecting traffic jams on I-10 between Lafayette and the Mississippi River Bridge.
The equipment is needed to drill an exploratory well.
