Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Some motorists in Bossier Parish will have to find another way around starting Wednesday, when the Caplis-Sligo Bridge closes for the next six months.

The bridge over the Flat River is going to be replaced, with the use of federal funds.

If drivers are north of the bridge can take Sligo Road to Caplis-Sligo Road.  Drivers south of the bridge can take Hwy 71.

The same bridge was shut down in mid-February when high water and debris damaged one of its pilings. Those repairs took several days and cost $10,000.

Drivers north of the bridge can take Sligo Road to Arkla Plant Rd to Davis Road to Hwy 157. Drivers south of the bridge can take Hwy 71.
