Opelousas city officials have closed a bridge for replacement.
Opelousas chief administrative officer Laura Balthazar says the bridge on Mouton Street was supposed to be replaced earlier this year, but the project was put off so crews could replace the Heather Street bridge.
Balthazar says the Mouton Street bridge project will last about three weeks at a cost of around $35,000. Detour routes are posted in the area.
