KNOWLESVILLE – The lift bridge in Knowlesville was closed beginning on Wednesday this week so workers could make some repairs. It looked like a crew was working on the deck of the bridge this afternoon.

The bridge was on a 6-ton weight restriction and was limited to one lane. Those restrictions will remain when the bridge reopens in about 10 days, according to the state Department of Transportation.
