NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

People driving to the Lower 9th Ward or St. Bernard Parish Monday and Tuesday may need to take a detour.

State highway workers plan to close the Judge Seeber Bridge, also known as the Claiborne Ave. Bridge, for about six and a half hours each day. It will shut down from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Department of Transportation and Development says a bridge inspection and mechanical maintenance will take place during the closure. Alternate routes are the St. Claude Bridge or the Florida Avenue Bridge. 

Officials remind people to drive with caution and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
