One Bridge Replacement Completed

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that the first bridge replacement is complete as part of the project to replace two rural structures between the villages of Castor and Lucky on LA 4 in Bienville Parish. 

The $2.3 million project began in April 2020 with the removal and replacement of the first bridge, located just east of Bob Neal Road over Castor Creek/Bee Branch. That bridge was opened to traffic on Friday, December 18, 2020.

The contractor is scheduled to begin the removal of the second bridge location on Monday, December 28, 2020, also over Castor Creek, which is just west of Haysfield Road. 

LA 4 in this location will be closed beginning December 28th to allow for work to begin on the second bridge replacement. Detour signage will continue to be in place to direct motorists around the project. 

The replacement of the second bridge is anticipated to be complete in late Spring 2021, with progress always dependent on weather conditions and water levels. 

Both bridges were originally built in 1968.
