Houma, La. - Drivers in Terrebonne Parish should finally notice some relief from traffic delays.

A bridge under construction at East Main Street and Prospect Boulevard opened Wednesday afternoon.

James Construction Group began building the bridge in 2010. It was originally scheduled to be finished in the spring of last year. The Transportation Department says the company ran into problems with equipment and the weather.

DOTD charged James Construction Group $5,000 each day the project ran over schedule. The department's engineers say the company will get credit for some of the delays caused by Hurricane Isaac and equipment problems beyond its control.
