ST. CLAUDE AVENUE BRIDGE - LA 46
Marine Closure for Emergency Bridge Repair
The St. Claude Avenue Bridge will be closed to marine traffic on Thursday, May 23rd, starting at 6:30 AM for an emergency machinery repair. The bridge will resume normal operation upon completion of the repair, and we expect the work to be completed by 2:00 PM. The roadway and pedestrian walkways will remain open during this repair.
The Port of New Orleans owns and operates four bridges (St. Claude Avenue, Florida Avenue, Almonaster Avenue, and Seabrook) across the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal. To help expedite vehicular traffic during peak drive times, the bridges will not be drawn for maritime traffic during restricted hours on weekdays (Monday-Friday), excluding federal holidays, except in the case of an emergency. These restricted hours are known as bridge curfews.
