Galliano (Tarpon) Bridge scheduled for repairs


The Galliano (Tarpon) Bridge crossing Bayou Lafourche will be closed to vehicular traffic from 5:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 7 until 6:45 a.m., Monday, Sept. 10, Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development officials said.

The closure is needed in order to allow DOTD contractors to remove and replace electrical conductors and components, part of a $372,000 project.

For the duration of the closure, the bridge will be inoperable with the span in the open for marine position. There will be no restrictions to marine traffic.
