The first vehicles over the Curtis-Coleman Bridge were a bit late this morning as highway workers re-directed traffic to make use of the northbound lanes.
The bridge connects Pineville and Alexandria over the Red River.
Eventually, the historic O.K. Allen two-lane bridge will be demolished.
Drivers are reminded there is a detour if headed north to Shreveport by Interstate 49 and that will remain in place until the ramp is fixed.
