BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Construction is moving along on the Dogwood Trail bridge over Red Chute Bayou.

Crews have been replacing the bridge since May.  They are using a federal grant to completely reconstruct the bridge.

Engineers say the bridge will feature wider lanes, a pedestrian walk and will be approximately 2 feet higher to help with flooding issues.

Residents who normally use that entrance have had to drive all the way to Bellevue road to get in and out.

The project is expected to be completed by September, possibly earlier.
