The Amite River bridge project is 1.2 miles in length along U.S. 190 (Florida Boulevard) beginning at La. 426 (Old Hammond Highway) and ending approximately a quarter of a mile west of La. 1032 (South River Road). Currently, this section of U.S. 190 serves nearly 26,000 vehicles per day.
The project will be built to the north of the existing bridges. The bridge will consist of two continuous spans, 2,900 feet long and 40 feet wide.
Each span will have two 12-foot lanes, a 10-foot outside shoulder, and a 4-foot inside shoulder.
The contractor will maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction throughout the duration of the project.
