I-10 river bridge to close

| June 10, 2010

The I-10 Mississippi River Bridge will be closed to traffic from 1-8 a.m. on June 13 to allow crews to hang overhead sign trusses as part of an ongoing sign replacement project.

The total closure is needed to give workers enough room to install the overhead sign trusses that span across all lanes on the bridge.

I-10 westbound traffic will be detoured to I-110 North to U.S. 190 West to Louisiana 1 South to I-10 West. An alternative detour route for I-10 Westbound will be I-10 West to I-110 North to U.S. 190 West to Louisiana 415 South to I-10 West.
