First Monday morning commute over the Sunshine Bridge
ASCENSION PARISH - The Monday morning drive over the Sunshine Bridge was without incident for the most part as two lanes of travel are open.
The partial reopening comes ahead of the mid-December deadline DOTD initially announced in the weeks following the crash that caused the bridge to shutdown.
The U.S. Coast Guard continues to investigate the October incident that had a barge carrying a fully erect crane attempt to travel on the river under the bridge.
Donaldsonville schools will stay on the adjusted schedules as DOTD continues to update the repair process.
