Drivers need to find a way around the Judge Seeber Bridge

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - State highway workers plan to close the Judge Seeber (Claiborne Avenue) Bridge in both directions on Friday, August 7, 2015. The closure will last from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. so the state says crews can make emergency repair.

A partial closure of the Claiborne bridge is also planned for Monday, August 10, 2015. Crews will close the westbound right lane from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Drivers should use an alternate route. The St. Claude Avenue bridge is an option, as is the I-10.  The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises drivers to be cautious when going through a construction zone.
