Baton Rouge, LA – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces the completion of the LA 964 bridge replacement over Riddle Creek in West Feliciana Parish. The original bridge, constructed in 1958, has been replaced with a three-span, 60-foot bridge to accommodate the increasing traffic demands and to ensure the safety and reliability of this critical infrastructure.

Due to the aging structure, deteriorating condition, and heavy traffic, it was necessary to replace the original 57-foot bridge. To expedite the project and minimize disruptions to the traveling public, DOTD's Bridge Maintenance Section took the lead in constructing the new bridge. In addition, DOTD managed clearing the right of way, relocating utilities, building a detour road, and laying the new asphaltic concrete to integrate the new bridge seamlessly with the existing roadway.

The project began on April 12, 2024, and the total cost of the project was $430,000.
