The Intracoastal Waterway Gulf Outlet Bridge, better known as the Green Bridge connecting Chalmette and New Orleans East, will be closed again this weekend for survey work, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced last week.
The bridge on Louisiana Hwy. 47 (Paris Rd.) will close Friday Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. through Monday, Feb. 14 at 5 a.m., the DOTD said.
Motorists are advised to detour to Interstate 10 via Louisiana Hwy. 39 (North Claiborne Ave.), U.S. Hwy. 90 or Elysian Fields Ave.
The closure is to allow crews to complete a topographic 3D scan and survey of the bridge in preparation for an upcoming infrastructure rehabilitation project, DOTD said.
