The road closed and detour signs have finally been removed. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development said yesterday that the replacement of two bridges on LA 4 over Bee Branch in Bienville Parish is now complete and both bridges are OPEN to traffic.
These bridges are located between the villages of Castor and Lucky.
The $2.3 million project began in April 2020 with the removal and replacement of the first bridge, located just east of Bob Neal Road. That bridge was completed and opened to traffic in December 2020.
Both rural bridges were originally built in 1968.
