UNION PARISH, La. (KNOE) - Update: As of April 20th, 2018, the bridge/road has been reopened.
An important road between Rocky Branch and West Monroe will be closed starting Wednesday due to high water.
According to Union Parish E-911 Director Danny A. Smith, the bridge is located about 2 miles South of Rocky Branch on LA 143. (Also known as Whites Ferry Road.)
He says it will be closed at 6:00 PM Tuesday, March 13, 2018, and could be closed for an entire week afterward.
While the bridge is closed, people will not be able to take Whites Ferry Road to travel between West Monroe and Rocky Branch. Instead, they will have to go through Farmerville or Sterlington by taking the following detours:
1) LA 2, US 165, I20, LA 34, LA 143
2) LA 616, LA 15, LA 2, LA 143
