NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The DOTD says two eastbound lanes on the Interstate 10 high rise will be closed for several days.

Commuters headed out of the city late Thursday were still dealing with a traffic nightmare, with only one eastbound lane open.

Inspectors said a fire Wednesday night caused moderate damage to the bridge.

DOTD said it hopes to make repairs by early next week. Right now they're keeping weight off of the left side of the bridge.
