NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Judge Seeber (Claiborne Avenue) Bridge was closed in both directions Friday until further notice due to mechanical failure, according to the Transportation Department. 

A contractor is on site assisting DOTD to resolve the problem. There is no estimated time-frame for reopening. 

The suggested alternate routes are the St. Claude or Florida Avenue bridges.
