Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - The Black Bayou Bridge has reopened to vehicle traffic following a two-week closure that began on Monday, July 19, 2021, according to DOTD.

The closure was necessary for the installation of the new electric winch system.

Intermittent alternating lane closures will continue while DOTD works to finish the installation. The remaining work includes the removal of the old winch system and modifications to the bridge house. The entire project is anticipated to be complete in fall 2021, weather permitting.
