ASCENSION PARISH, LA — Parish officials have closed a bridge located on Dewey Breaux Road in Gonzales until further notice.
Crews will replace the bridge with box culverts. The bridge crosses over the Calbasse Canal.
Ascension Parish Department of Public Works Assistant Director Johnny Richardson said Dewey Breaux Road is a single residential road that runs south off of La. 621. It is located approximately one-half mile west of the La. 621/La. 44 intersection.
Richardson said crews installed a one-lane temporary road crossing at that location for residents and emergency vehicles.
