Bridge Closure Notice

LA308 Galliano (Tarpon) Bridge (aka La 308 Spur)

Post Date:10/01/2019 4:15 PM

The Galliano (Tarpon) Bridge (a.k.a. the LA 308 Spur) crossing Bayou Lafourche in Galliano, LA will be closed to vehicular traffic from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., daily from Monday October 7, 2019 thru Thursday October 10, 2019.
These closures are required in order to allow LADOTD’s in-house bridge repair personnel to perform structural repairs to the movable steel span. Marine traffic will not be affected by the aforementioned vehicular closure(s) at the bridge. Outside of the aforementioned times for vehicular 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.
