Initially, the North Lake Rosemound bridge over Beaver Creek was to close for repairs March 2-6 but because of rain delays, the work has been postponed until March 9-13, said Jim Ferguson, director of Public Works for West Feliciana Parish.

Work is expected to be performed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

“We’ve alerted the Homeowners Association for Lake Rosemound to help get the word out, and signs have been posted at each end of the bridge to alert area residents,” said Ferguson. “Please make plans to align your schedules with the closure.”

The repairs should begin March 9, but are contingent upon the weather, Ferguson said.

Plans for first responders, bus drivers and service providers can be discussed by contacting Ferguson at (225) 635-3864 or emailing

Musical montage

The St. Francisville Symphony Association will present a musical montage beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, March 6.

Because of construction at Grace Episcopal Church, the Symphony’s usual venue, the musical montage will be held in Grace’s Jackson Hall, 11621 Ferdinand St.

This spring concert will feature the works of Bach, Fauré, Schubert and Tevener as well as other known composers.

Featured musicians will include Jacob Benda as conductor/organist/pianist, oboist Grace Woodworth and cellist Alvaro Angulo, of the LSU School of Music, as well as the Grace Church Choir featuring soloists Kristopher Davis, Trey Levy, Michelle Sewell, Ellen Sturgill and Cara Waring.

“We are very excited to offer this additional concert in our 2014-15 season. While our Baroque chamber music series by the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra was a big success this year, this spring concert gives us the opportunity to enjoy vocal and instrumental performances. If you’ve never attended one of our concerts, give this one a try,” said Treva Tidwell, Symphony Association president.

Admission is free, and everyone is invited to attend. Children are welcome as always, Tidwell said.
