West Larose Lift Span Bridge to be closed for a period of 3 months

According to a release by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, the West Larose Vertical Lift Span Bridge will be closed, beginning Wednesday, August 26, at 7:00 a.m. for a period of approximately 3 months.

The bridge will be completely shut down to vehicular traffic to allow the contractor to raise the bridge, remove the old painting system and repaint the structure towers and main span.

DOTD says the bridge will be made operational should a tropical storm move into the Gulf with any path near the Louisiana coast.
