Motorists, prepare for additional bridge closures
The Lockport Company Canal Bridge, crossing the Company Canal on LA 1 in Lockport, will be under a one-lane operation daily from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Tuesday May 30, until Friday June 9.
The daily one-lane closures are needed in order to allow bridge inspection personnel to conduct a comprehensive structural, mechanical and electrical inspection of the structure.
The road will be open to regular traffic with a 12-foot lane restriction on oversized loads passing through the work zone.
Work on the West Larose Vertical Lift Bridge on LA 1 crossing the Intracoastal Canal Waterway in Larose will be extended through 5 p.m. Friday, June 2.
This extension to the current closure is necessary for crews to complete lift span function testing. This is a 24-hour/day closure. Closures are subject to change due to weather conditions.
The bridge had previously been scheduled to close through May 26.
The $24.1 million project is estimated to be completed in fall 2017.
