DOTD: I-10 Twin Spans Reopen To Traffic

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces it has reopened all lanes of the Interstate 10 Twin Span Bridge, making the route from Mississippi to New Orleans accessible.

The bridges had been closed to traffic since Tuesday after ice formed on the bridges.

The Causeway reopened to traffic shortly after noon on Thursday after crews removed the final patches of ice on the bridge.

Causeway Police Sgt. Mike Viola told Fox 8 that ice covered an 8-mile stretch of the southbound span on the Mandeville side of the bridge. In some places, the ice was three-quarters of an inch thick.
