ST. MARY PARISH, La. -- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced today that the $12 million U.S. 90 Atchafalaya River Bridge rehabilitation project is now complete.

As part of DOTD’s bridge preservation program, the project involved replacing needed structural metalwork and sandblasting and repainting the steel members of the bridge.

Built in the 1970’s, the Atchafalaya River Bridge serves as a vital connection and hurricane evacuation route for local communities and industries in coastal Louisiana.

Work began on the project in August 2019 and was completed in October 2022.

DOTD’s bridge preservation program involves a network level, long term strategy that enhances bridge performance by using an integrated, cost-effective set of practices that maintain, improve or restore the physical condition of bridge structure or elements.
