Lane Restrictions & Bridge Inspection
Vehicular traffic on the St. Claude Avenue Bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM on May 21st & 22nd (Tuesday & Wednesday) for bridge inspection work. The bridge may also open more frequently than normal on May 23rd & 24th for inspection and testing of the electrical and mechanical systems.

The Port of New Orleans owns and operates four bridges (St. Claude Avenue, Florida Avenue, Almonaster Avenue, and Seabrook) across the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal. To help expedite vehicular traffic during peak drive times, the bridges will not be drawn for maritime traffic during restricted hours on weekdays (Monday-Friday), excluding federal holidays, except in the case of an emergency. These restricted hours are known as bridge curfews.
