After having been closed for nearly 18 months, the bridge on Northern Avenue in west Crowley has been re-opened to traffic. A 5-ton weight limit, with the exception of school buses, has been posted. Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development approved the re-opening of the bridge Wednesday afternoon.
At a cost of just under $150,000, the bridge on Northern Avenue is now open to weight-limited traffic.
Police are on the scene investigating a shooting that occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m. at the Gator Car Wash near the corner of S. Parkerson Ave. and Mill St. in Crowley.
Whether or not to commission parish Animal Control Officers, thus allowing them to carry weapons on duty, was among the topics discussed by the Acadia Parish Police Jury Tuesday night.
