The Vermilion River crossing on Surrey Street near Vermilionville and Lafayette Regional Airport was closed for repairs Monday morning. The bridge is expected to be out of commission for a month as crews shore up the approaches to the bridge and make other emergency repairs.

Motorists wishing to get from westbound Pinhook Road to southbound U.S. 90/Evangeline Thruway will need to detour to University Avenue because a left turn from Pinhook onto the Thruway is prohibited (see detour map).
