Work on Hale Boggs Bridge will slow commuters

HAHNVILLE, LA (WVUE) -

A major resurfacing project on the Hale Boggs Bridge is expected to create major delays for commuters who routinely use the bridge to cross the Mississippi River. 

The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's office issued a reminder for drivers this week that work crews will soon begin to replace the bridge's asphalt roadbed and this project will require  lane restrictions.

The job begins on February 1 and will likely continue through June. 

The Sheriff's Department recommends that drivers use alternate routes, and try to avoid the bridge during peak commuting times in the early morning and late afternoon.
