Traffic barricades at California and Fifth streets in Berwick keep motorists from accessing the Long-Allen La. 182 Bridge in the background where a Berwick Police and state Department of Transportation Vehicle were stationed. The bridge was closed Tuesday afternoon after an 18-wheeler struck a beam on the Berwick side in place to prevent vehicles over a certain height from crossing the bridge. The bridge will remain closed overnight and for an indefinite time period Wednesday, Berwick Police Chief David Leonard said. (The Daily Review/Geoff Stoute)
