On Thursday, May 23, the eastbound, inside lane of the Sunshine Bridge will be closed from 8AM to 3PM.
The purpose of this closure will be for crews to repair the finger joints of the bridge approaches. The westbound lane closure will continue with the outside lane restricted to 10-Ft. lane width.
During the remaining time before the bridge completely reopens, commuters are reminded to take advantage of Commuter Krewe. Motorists may also use the Plaquemine ferry and Veterans Memorial Bridge as detours to cross the river.
Motorists may also monitor what’s going on by visiting the DOTD Facebook and Twitter pages.
