The Gendarme Road Bridge between Kilchrist Road and Joli Road will be closed for eight months beginning Friday.

On July 23, Lafayette Consolidated Government announced the immediate closure of the bridge located approximately 0.5 miles south of Kilchrist Road and 1.5 miles north of Joli Road.

They say the bridge's current condition required it to be closed immediately.

The three-span timber bridge will be replaced with a three-span concrete bridge.

The project is expected to be completed within eight months.

Detour routes will be posted.
