Shoe Creek Bridge on Lovett to Close for Summer Repairs

By  | 

From the City of Central

   The City-Parish and State DOTD will close the Lovett Rd bridge over Shoe Creek for approximately three months this summer to replace the wooden structure.  This bridge has been rated as one of the most structurally deficient bridges in need of repair in East Baton Rouge Parish. 

    Bids were opened on the bridge replacement on February 23, 2011.  The low-bidder was Industrial Enterprises, Inc.   Work is being delayed until the end of May after school lets out for the summer.  This closure will necessitate a long detour for residents who use Lovett Rd on a daily basis.  Lovett Rd will be closed between Bronco Lane and Joor Rd during this period.  The bridge will be completely dismantled and replaced with large concrete box culverts.
