A bridge replacement project in CarencroLafayette Parish that was supposed to start within a month has been moved up because current conditions require it to be closed immediately.

In a press release from Lafayette Public Works Department, the Gendarme Road Bridge between Kilchrist Road and Joli Road is now closed for 8 months as the three-span timber bridge will be replaced with a three-span concrete bridge. The bridge is located about 0.5 miles south of Kilchrist Road and 1.5 miles north of Joli Road.

There are detour routes posted.
