Wisner Ave. bridge reconstruction project to begin Dec. 1

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Drivers will notice big changes at the Wisner Avenue bridge in December.    
The City of New Orleans expects work crews to begin the bridge's reconstruction project on December 1.
We've already noticed work crews in the area for days. Light poles on the bridge were removed November 23.
Earlier this year, plans for a revamped bridge included space for jogging lanes. City Park workers expect a new bridge will create more foot traffic in the park.
The project is not expected to wrap until March of 2017.
