EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

Starting Monday, June 22, drivers in the Pride-Baywood area in East Baton Rouge Parish will have to deal with a closed bridge.

The LA 37 bridge over Whitten Creek will be shut down for the next eight weeks.

Crews are working to remove and replace the bridge because of its age and its deteriorating condition.

When the new bridge is completed, there will no longer be any weight restrictions over it.
