Temporary road installed in St. Amant

Staff reports

A bridge that crosses the New River Canal at Roundtree Road has been condemned by state officials prompting the installation of a temporary road for access to residences at that location.

Roundtree Road runs north off of LA 22 at the intersection of LA 22 and LA East 936.

The bridge crossing is approximately 800 feet north of LA 22 on Roundtree Road.

The temporary access road is located between Roundtree Road and Marantha Acres Street off of LA 22, and runs north to access those residences north and east of the New River Canal.

Parish public works officials estimate the bridge replacement will take about seven to eight months.
