Bogalusa Public Works Director James Hall told The Daily News on Thursday afternoon that a major roadwork project would close a portion of Davenport Avenue for likely at least three months.

Hall said the road closure would be on Davenport Avenue, between Columbia Street and Servitude Street. The closure is necessary in order to replace a bridge over the creek there. Hall said that the city inspected the bridge this week, and determined portions of it should be completely replaced as a safety precaution.

He said that public safety agencies, school systems and ambulance companies have already been notified of the closure and advised to find an alternate route of travel.

Hall said that the road will be closed “indefinitely,” but certainly for at least three months.
