Larose Lift Bridge Repairs Completed Ahead of Schedule

Post Date:03/07/2019 5:15 PM

T-Bois Bridge

The Lafourche Department of Public Works announced March 6th, 2019 that repairs to the T-Bois Lift Bridge in Larose were completed ahead of schedule.  The predicted timeframe for the repairs was three days, but were finished in less than two days.  The Department of Public Works was pleased to report that the foreman for Coastal Bridge, whose team performed the repairs, was able to pull in all available manpower which made the difference.  Lafourche Parish Government is required by law to allow marine traffic passage at all times, but necessary maintenance and unintentional accidents sometimes delay and even halt vehicular passage.  Safe travel for all is paramount, so communication is the key in order to notify the public of bridge closures or possible delays.  With any bridge closure, the intention is to minimize the inconvenience.  "We appreciate everyone's patience and continue to work towards the most efficient ways to manage our lift bridge systems to support commerce," said President Cantrelle.  For notifications on any bridge or road closures, please sign up for eNotifications at or follow us on Facebook @lafourchegov.
