Road Closure: LA 8

La. 8 is closed approximately 1.6 miles west of the west junction of La. 465 in Simpson due to soil erosion around the abutments of a temporary detour bridge due to high water. It is important that the public not ignore this closure since the roadway at this construction site is unsafe due to the erosion of the embankment at the bridge ends. The roadway will remain closed to all traffic until the roadway can be repaired.
