Post Date:05/14/2019 11:00 AM

The Galliano (Tarpon) Bridge (a.k.a. the LA 308 Spur) crossing Bayou Lafourche in Galliano, LA will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., daily from Monday May 20, 2019 thru Thursday May 23, 2019 and from Monday May 27, 2019 thru Thursday May 30, 2019. These closures are required in order to allow LADOTD’s in-house bridge repair crew(s) to perform structural repairs to the movable steel span. Along with the vehicular closure(s), a marine closure will be in place from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. daily during the aforementioned dates. Outside of the aforementioned times for vehicular and marine closures, the bridge will be under normal operation.

Alternate bridges available for crossing Bayou Lafourche are:

Larose Vertical Lift Bridge, 8.3 miles north of the project, and the Golden Meadow Vertical Lift Bridge, 6.6 miles south of the project.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
