Eastbound closure on New Bridge this weekend
BATON ROUGE- An eastbound lane of the I-10 Mississippi River Bridge will be closed for the weekend so crews can inspect the superstructure.
Last weekend, inspectors closed a westbound travel lane to inspect the other side of the bridge. The closure caused signfiicant traffic on I-10. The same can be expected this weekend.
The inspection, described by the state as routine, will close lanes from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
