JEFFERSON PARISH- Officials closed down all lanes of the Huey P. Long Bridge Wednesday after the structure was hit by a vessel antenna Wednesday afternoon.

A report from the New Orleans Advocate says the antenna from a passing boat struck the bridge, and the damage appears to be cosmetic.

DOTD shut the roadway down for much of the afternoon as crews assessed the damage. It was reopened after 4 p.m. Wednesday.
