SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

The Jimmie Davis Bridge over the Red River will be down to one lane of traffic for one day because of routine bridge inspection.

State transportation authorities say the lane restriction will last from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10.

The closure will allow vehicles 10-feet-wide or smaller to pass through the bridge inspection zone. Larger vehicles must detour using Barksdale Boulevard (Hwy. 71) north to Westgate Drive (LA 3032) west to Youree Drive (Hwy. 1) south.

Louisiana's DOTD reminds motorists to drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.

The work will be performed weather permitting.
