You can expect a slower than normal commute if you travel on the Jimmie Davis Bridge next week.

Starting Tuesday, July 22 the bridge over the Red River in Bossier Parish will be restricted to one lane of traffic.

The lane will be shut down between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. due to a routine bridge inspection.

This closure will allow vehicles 10 feet or smaller to pass through the Bridge Inspection zone.  Larger vehicles must detour using US 71 north to LA 3032 west to LA 1 south.
