The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has reopened the Judge Seeber (Claiborne) Bridge eight hours ahead of schedule, after a weekend closure. DOTD contractor Boh Bros. Construction Co. completed re-tensioning the main lifting cables installed last spring, during the last phase of work on the structure.

            Evening rush hour traffic can now take the Judge Seeber Bridge as a route to and from the Lower Ninth Ward and St. Bernard Parish areas. The next scheduled closure is January 21-23, 2011.
