NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Highway 11 bridge spanning Lake Pontchartrain between New Orleans and Slidell is closed to vehicular traffic while workers try to fix the malfunctioning draw bridge.
The state Department of Transportation and Development said Wednesday that the draw bridge remains raised so marine traffic can pass.
Maintenance officials estimate the bridge will be out until the second week of July or until an alternate route for marine traffic is identified.
