After what seemed like decades we finally got the Surrey Street Bridge reopened to the thru traffic. That bridge had actually been closed for just a few months but for motorists, it certainly seemed a lot longer. Well now comes word the roadway is closed again, this time to repair a water main.

Lafayette Consolidated Government closed the roadway over the weekend when a break in a waterline resulted in a failure of the roadway. Surrey Street has been closed between Champagne Street and Kattie Drive. This basically affects the 1300 block of Surrey Street.

Repair crews cannot say at this time just how long it will take to rectify the situation. Depending on the weather the repair project could take several days to complete. Up until that time, no through traffic will be allowed through the work zone.
