NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the Judge Seeber Bridge on Claiborne Ave. in the Ninth Ward is closed to vehicular traffic due to a mechanical malfunction.

It is not clear what caused the malfunction but the D.O.T.D says crews are on the scene making repairs.

There is no estimated time frame for when the bridge will reopen.

Drivers can take the Saint Claude avenue bridge or Florida Ave. crossing as alternative routes.
