Provencal Bridge closing for two weeks beginning July 23


The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that the bridge on LA 120 over Bayou Blue (Structure #08350420703651) located 3.4 miles west of the LA 120/LA 478 intersection in Flora will be closed to all traffic Monday, July, 23, 2018. This closure will last approximately 2 weeks for a new box culvert structure to be installed. Work at this site will be completed prior to Aug. 13, the first day of school for Natchitoches Parish public schools.
