BARATARIA, La. (WDSU) —Final adjustments to the Barataria Bridge could be affected by weather this week.

Last week a barge hit the Barataria Bridge, which is closed to traffic Monday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for repairs.

The bridge is the only route for people to cross the bayou.

Crews spent the weekend repairing it, using a crane to put the roadway back into service.

Weather allowing, final repairs would be completed between the time frame provided Monday.
