NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Drivers will need to make alternate plans on Wednesday if they were planning to take the Causeway Bridge from the North Shore to Metairie.

The bridge will be closed to all traffic from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for vehicle recovery from a crash that happened Tuesday.

Two people were rescued by Causeway Police officers and a Good Samaritan after their vehicle went over the side of the bridge. A dog was also rescued.

I-55 to LaPlace or the Twin Span from Slidell are good alternates. Remember that the Hwy. 11 bridge over Lake Pontchartrain is closed for repairs.
