Effective immediately, Harper Bayou Bridge crossing Roundaway Bayou on State Route 603 in Madison Parish is closed to all through traffic, approximately five miles east of U.S. Highway 65.
This bridge closure is required due to rising floodwaters overtopping the bridge. Once floodwaters recede, the bridge will be inspected and will be returned to full traffic flow when deemed safe to do so.
Louisiana’s Department of Transportation and Development reminds motorists to NEVER drive around “‘road closed” barricades at any time for any reason. Also, remember to never drive through standing or running water.
DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.See a typo? Report it here.
