Overlaying equipment will be moved onto the site and work is scheduled to begin on the new surface Friday morning. Temporary road striping will also be applied. A press release plus notification on the police jury’s website ( and Facebook page will announce the official reopening of the bridge.

No limits on the bridge will be posted.
