Galliano Tarpon Bridge closed this weekend

Galliano Tarpon Bridge closed this weekend

The Galliano (Tarpon) Bridge (a.k.a. the LA 308 Spur) crossing Bayou Lafourche in Galliano, LA will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday October 27, until 6:45 a.m. on Monday October 29, and from 6:30 a.m. on Saturday November 3, until 6:45 a.m. on Monday, November 5. These closures are needed in order to allow LADOTD’s contractor to remove and replace electrical conductors and components that are part of a comprehensive electrical rehabilitation project. For the duration of the closure(s), the bridge will be inoperable with the span in the open to marine position. There will be no restrictions to marine traffic during the aforementioned vehicular closure times.

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.
