St. Bernard Parish Update – AUGUST 30, 2020
Chalmette, LA – ST. CLAUDE AVENUE BRIDGE (LA 46)
Beginning Monday, August 31, 2020 through early December 2020, vehicular traffic on the St. Claude Bridge will be restricted to one lane in each direction for bridge repairs. The two outer lanes in each direction will remain open, while the two innermost lanes will be closed.
These lane restrictions are needed for structural and mechanical bridge repairs that cannot be performed while the bridge is operational for maritime traffic, therefore, this work has been scheduled to coincide with separate U.S. Army Corps of Engineers repairs of the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal Lock, which will close the bridge to marine traffic. The bridge will remain in the down position starting on Sept. 7.
