Bridge closed on White's Ferry Road

OUACHITA Parish - The bridge on LA 143 (White's Ferry Rd) at Cross Bayou in Ouachita Parish between Rocky Branch and West Monroe will be closed, effective at 6:00 p.m. today (3/13/18).

This means travel directly between West Monroe and Rocky Branch will not be possible as all side roads are flooded.

This is NOT the bridge over D'Arbonne Bayou at The Landing (near the old Joe Bob's). The Cross Bayou bridge is located approximately 3 miles north of that bridge and two miles south of the Ouachita/Union parish line.

Detour will be via LA 2 to US 165 (Sterlington) or LA 2 to LA 33 or LA 15 (Farmerville and then either West Monroe or Ruston).

The bridge closure is expected to last at least one week and will be contingent upon inspection at that time.

Please tag anyone who regularly travels LA 143 between RB and WM.
