Blanchard Road Bridge will close temporarily


Natchitoches Parish President Rick Nowlin announces that the Blanchard Road Bridge over Bayou Cadney Tributary, located near the intersection of St. Maurice Lane, will be temporarily closed beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 14, for a period of approximately five hours.

During the temporary closure, Parish Highway Department and Natchitoches Levee and Drainage District crews will be at work removing an accumulation of drift from the upstream side of the bridge.

It is anticipated that the bridge will be re-opened by 2:00 p.m. so as to not interfere with traffic accessing Weaver Elementary School and St. Mary’s High School.
