Good morning Opelousas and all of its citizens. We, Public Works (contractor) and the city, just completed bridge repairs on the Mouton Street bridge. Much work and cost was applied to these repairs. Extensive ‘concrete work’ was included in these repairs. It is imperative that the concrete has time to settle, set, and dry completely before any traffic is allowed to cross and the bridge is ready for the volume of traffic it endures each day. The bridge will be ‘barricaded’ for a few days. Please ‘Do Not’ attempt to move the barricades so any other future problems will not occur. We are asking for your patience but also concern for all of our SAFETY. Thank you for your cooperation.
