Lafayette, LA – The Public Works Department announced today the immediate closure of the Gendarme Road Bridge located approximately 0.5 miles south of Kilchrist Road and 1.5 miles north of Joli Road. Construction of a replacement bridge by Diamond B Construction Company was scheduled to begin within a month, but current conditions require the bridge be closed immediately. The construction project requires replacement of the three-span timber bridge with a three-span concrete bridge. Completion of the project is expected to take approximately eight months.

Detour routes will be posted.
