The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will be doing repairs to the Lewis Street Bridge next week, and the bridge will have to close for a time

The work will take place starting at 8:30 the morning of Tuesday, March 29 and last through 3 o'clock that afternoon, weather permitting.

Instead of using the Lewis Street Bridge over the Bayou Teche on Highway 87, DOTD officials suggest you detour using Louisiana Highway 87, Louisiana Highway 3195 which is the Nelson Canal Bridge and Louisiana Highway 182.

DOTD reminds drivers to please proceed with caution through work zones.
