Claiborne Parish residents who travel LA 518 near Lisbon will need to take a different route beginning Monday, August 27.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will begin repairing the pilings on the Gee Creek Bridge. The bridge is just southwest of Lisbon and a little over three miles south of LA 2.
With the bridge completely closed, drivers will need to use LA 146, US 79 and LA 2 as detour routes. The work should be done by August 31, weather permitting.
