Iberville Parish- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that beginning Wednesday, April 6, the Bayou Sorrel Bridge on LA 75 will have alternating closures. These closures are necessary to allow marine traffic to pass as crews work on repairing the fender system that has been damaged from previous impacts, as well as the impact that occurred late last week.

Crews were able to fabricate the necessary parts to make the permanent repairs to the bridge on Monday, however, the fender system now needs to be repaired.

The below vehicular closures will remain in effect until further notice:

· Monday- Thursday: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
· Friday- Sunday: The bridge will open on call to marine traffic.
