UPDATE: BAYOU BLUE PONTOON BRIDGE BACK TO NORMAL OPERATION.

October 4, 2021

The Bayou Blue Pontoon Bridge on LA 316 crossing the Intracoastal Canal Waterway in Bayou Blue, LA will be closed to vehicular traffic until further notice due to a failure with one of the electrically operated winches that is required to open and close the floating barge section of the bridge. LADOTD maintenance personnel are actively troubleshooting the problem in order to determine what course of action is needed to get the system back operational.

Detour routes around the project, during the closure are as follows:

Eastbound: LA 316 to LA 3087 (Prospect Street) to LA 659 (East Park) to LA 24.
Westbound: LA 24 to LA 659 (East Park) to LA 3087 (Prospect Street) to LA 316.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
