Black Bayou Bridge to be opened soon

The Black Bayou Bridge will soon be up and running again.

Steve Jiles with the Department of Transportation and Development says the bridge is currently in route from the shipyard in New Orleans back here.

It's expected to arrive on Friday, and Jiles says crews will begin work immediately to install it.

He says late Friday is what the DOTD is shooting for to have the bridge accessible.

The original date for it to be back open was tomorrow.
