Douglas Road Bridge construction - Grant Parish

Posted: Updated:

GRANT PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Construction to begin on Douglas Road Bridge in Grant Parish.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises the public that on September 9, 2013, construction will begin on the Douglas Road Bridge over Swafford Creek in Grant Parish. This work will begin 150' east of the Douglas Road Bridge and continue 350', ending at a location approximately 150' west of the bridge.

The bridge has been closed for some time and will continue to be closed until the completion of the project. Thru traffic will be not maintained, but access to either end of the project is available via Fairfield Rd. and LA122.

DOTD said the intent of this project is to remove the existing pipe crossing and construct a three span concrete bridge. Extensive erosion control measures are being used to reduce impact to downstream Louisiana Pearlshell Mussels in Swafford Creek. Approaches to the bridge will have a 8.5" thick class II base with two layers of superpave asphaltic concrete. Associated work includes placing aggregate surface course on shoulders, adding one cross drain pipe, and pavement striping. The project was awarded to Guinn Construction, LLC. in the amount of $321,104.00. The work associated with this project should take approximately three months to complete.
