Effective immediately, U.S. Highway 80 in Louisiana’s Madison Parish will be closed at the Bayou Macon Bridge one mile east of the intersection of Louisiana 17 and U.S. 80 near Delhi, La.
This closure is required due to deterioration of bridge components over Bayou Macon. This closure will remain in effect until the damages to the bridge can be fully investigated and all necessary repairs are completed.
The detour route will be Louisiana 17, Interstate 20, Louisiana 577 and U.S. 80.
