Lajaunie Rd Bridge will remain closed for approximately ninety days, City-Parish officials say.

On January 24th, DOTD closed the Lajaunie Rd Bridge crossing Bayou St. Clair Lateral 1 because of structural deficiencies in the timber piles.

At first, city-parish officials thought that they could repair the damage, but additional evaluation has determined that the repair will be more extensive than they thought. A third-party contract is going to have to do the work, a release states. 

In the meantime, detours will be posted.
