Posted: Updated:

The Northern Avenue bridge in Crowley will be completed within the next couple of weeks.  The completion of this project will also cost the parish an additional $10,530.  Parish officials say the contractor, while repairing the damaged pilings on the structure, discovered "additional problems which require additional work to return the bridge to service."

The $138,500 price tag to repair the bridge was divided among three entities - the parish ($50,000), the city of Crowley ($38,500) and Capitol Manufacturing ($50,000) - with the agreement that any overages would be paid by the parish.  The current contract is to bring the bridge up to code so that it can be re-opened to weight-limited traffic, with more work to be done in the future.
