The bridge on Connie Road west of the Iota Highway in Acadia Parish is closed for good, unless local officials find revenue to replace the bridge or receive grant money from the federal government.
Acadia Parish Police Jury Secretary-Treasurer Richard "Dickie" Latiolais said the state Department of Transportation and Development inspects bridges every year.
Safety issues were found during the last inspection, Latiolais said.
Because a new bridge opened on Fabacher Road near the old bridge, DOTD told Acadia Parish officials it would be a good time to close the bridge indefinitely.
