Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez announced Wednesday David Drive in Prairieville will be closed on Monday, Feb. 25 for approximately four months for a bridge replacement.

Crews from the Ascension Parish Department of Public Works and East Ascension Gravity Drainage District No. 1 will replace the bridge with three 10 feet by 7 feet box culverts.

The bridge is located approximately 1,400 feet west of the intersection with Manchac Acres Road.

David Drive is accessible by Manchac Acres Road on the east side of the construction site and Van Broussard Road on the west side of the site.

Officials estimate David Drive will reopen at that location on July 22, 2013, weather permitting.
