HARVEY, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation announces that the 4th Street Bridge in Harvey (on La. 18) has reopened to vehicular traffic as of this morning. However, the waterway remains closed to marine traffic as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues its work on the lock structure.

The $7 million project to improve the bridge was coordinated with the U.S. Coast Guard and The Corps. C.E.C. Inc., performed the work. There are a few punch list items remaining and the bridge will be subject to closures for vessel passage related to The Corps’ lock project.

All construction activity is weather dependent and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. DOTD appreciates the motoring public’s patience and reminds drivers to please exercise caution when traveling through work zone areas and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment. Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking or biking near an active work zone.
