Lower 9th Ward and St. Bernard residents rejoice! The Claiborne Avenue / Judge Seeber Bridge is set to re-open Friday!

The bridge has been shut down for nearly 13 weeks for repainting.

The DOTD originally said the bridge would reopen in early September, then pushed it to mid-October, then changed that to early November.

Bambi Hall from the DOTD tells WGNO News that the bridge should be open by evening rush hour.
