Bridging The Gap

Contractors doing repairs on the Chef Menteur Pass bridge additional damage than previous known.

Workers from Coastal Bridge, the Baton Rouge-based contractor working on the repairs, discovered a tension crack on the bridge’s east bank in early March. A Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development investigation found tidewaters had caused deep scouring, washing away soil from the shore and bridge supports.
The fact that problems are being identified and corrected are a departure from the way things used to be done in south Lousiana. Let's keep it up.
