State transportation authorities say the drainage canal bridge on Louisiana Highway 20 in Chackbay will be closed for repairs this week.
The Daily Comet reports the bridge is about a mile south of Louisiana Highway 304 in Lafourche Parish.
It will be closed from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. beginning Monday. The work is expected to be completed on Friday.
Officials of the state Department of Transportation and Development say crews will be repairing the bridge's timber substructure.
