Some area bridge and road closures could make it a little difficult for you to get around next week.

You will need to find an alternate route if you travel on the LA 153 Bridge in Bienville Parish.

Starting at 8:30 a.m. Monday, May 5 the bridge near the town of Ashland will be closed for five days due to piling repairs.

You should detour using LA 155, LA 9, LA 4 and LA 153.

Meanwhile, you won't be able to drive on LA 518 in Webster Parish.

Beginning Monday, May 5 there will be a full road closure of LA 518 at US 79.

This closure is related to pipe replacement and the work is expected to be complete in five days.

Alternate Route: 1.) For Southbound US 79/ Westbound US 79 detour via LA 9 to Athens; west on LA 518.

Alternate Route 2.) For Northbound US 79/Eastbound I-20 detour via LA 154 North at the Gibsland exit; west on LA 518.
