ST. CHARLES PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) — The eastbound left lane on I-10 Bonnet Carre Spillway Bridge remains closed to truck traffic due to bridge damage after a vehicle fire on Monday.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) said it is unknown when the lane will be reopened.
“Trucks traveling I-10 eastbound to New Orleans should take I-12 either in Baton Rouge or at I-55 north in LaPlace because truck traffic is closed at this location. All through traffic is advised not to use US 61 because of the need for Hurricane Ida response,” according to DOTD in a news release.
