Jimmie Davis Bridge inspection could cause traffic delays

SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - A bridge inspection is expected to cause some travel delays Wednesday.

The Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) says beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 13 and Thursday, July 14, the LA 511/Jimmie Davis Hwy. Bridge over the Red River will be reduced to one lane for a routine bridge inspection.

The closure will allow vehicles 10 feet wide or smaller to pass through the bridge inspection zone.

Larger vehicles will be required to detour using LA 1, LA 3032 and US 71.

The work will be done weather permitting and will last from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on both days.
