RACELAND, La. (AP) - Motorists in Lafourche Parish will have to take a detour Friday evening and early Saturday as a film crew makes use of a portion of Louisiana Highway 182.

The Daily Comet reports (http://bit.ly/1q48PIY ) scenes will be shot along the highway in Raceland for the movie "Don't Mess With Texas."

The film stars actress Reese Witherspoon.

The highway is expected to close Friday at 5 p.m. and remain closed until about 6 a.m. on Saturday.

Parish officials say alternate routes include U.S. Highway 90, Louisiana Highway 1 and Louisiana Highway 308.
