IBERVILLE PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) — Construction on Bayou Breaux Bridge will continue after the project was delayed in June due to cracked piling.
Plans have been redesigned and the project is slated to restart on Thursday, Oct. 27, according to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD). Crews will start pile-driving operations to build a new bridge.
DOTD said the temporary diversion road that was opened in August will be closed. Drivers can detour to access LA 75 by traveling LA 74 to LA 30 to LA 3115.
Construction is estimated to be completed in the summer of 2023.
Officials ask drivers to drive cautiously through construction and to watch out for crews and equipment.
