The bridge is located 2.3 miles north of the La. 6/La. 3175 intersection near Natchitoches. No detour will be needed, as one lane will be open at all times Drive with caution around the construction sites and be on the lookout for work crews and equipment.

Motorists waited Thursday morning for the DOTD crews to set up the markers so traffic could be diverted to one lane throughout the day.
