Kisatchie Slough Bridge Construction Continues

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5 ) -   Due to the recent heavy rains on Thursday, October 31, the temporary crossing in place for the new permanent Kisatchie Bayou Slough Bridge is closed.

The Kisatchie Bayou Slough Bridge provides water flow relief during periods of high water from Kisatchie Bayou. The bridge is located approximately one mile east of the Natchitoches Parish Community of Lotus.

This bridge is a major Louisiana DOTD project, and will provide safe passage for local residents, forest visitors, emergency responders and Kisatchie Ranger District Employees.

The new bridge is expected to open in 6 to 8 weeks.

During this time forest visitors coming from the Louisiana Highway 117 areas will be detoured around Louisiana Highway 118 and Forest Service road 360.  Any traffic coming from the eastern end of the Kisatchie Ranger District, particularly from Louisiana Highway 119, will continue to have access to camps and trails, but there will be no through traffic until the new bridge is open.   The bridge is under construction by James Construction of Baton Rouge.

For more information about the Kisatchie Slough Bridge construction and road information please contact the Kisatchie Ranger District at 318 - 472-1840.
