No issues found during 'New Bridge' inspection
BATON ROUGE- State inspectors said Monday, recent inspections of the I-10 Mississippi River Bridge found nothing that alarmed them.
The state released limited information about the inspection, at the request of the WBRZ News 2 Investigative Unit. The full report is not available for public review, a state spokesperson said.
"Nothing major was found; it was a standard inspection. The bridge is safe," DOTD spokesman Rodney Mallett said.
For two weekends in late July and early August, inspectors closed one lane in each direction to get an up-close and thorough view of the 46-year-old bridge.
