The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that work has begun to repair the right lane on I-10 eastbound near Whiskey Bay, along the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.
Emergency contractors visited the site to assess the damaged section of the bridge deck and develop a work plan.
At this time, work is estimated to be complete on Monday, November 20, 2023, prior to peak Thanksgiving travel.
The right lane was initially closed in October 2023 after crews discovered extensive damage to the bridge deck while conducting repair work.
Oversized loads will not be permitted through the project area until the lane is reopened.
