The southbound lanes of the Causeway were closed momentarily this afternoon so crews could pull a truck out of Lake Pontchartrain.

The driver’s body was recovered Tuesday a day after the vehicle went into the lake.

The effort to pull the truck out of the water was planned for yesterday but cancelled due to bad weather.


At about 4 p.m. Monday, Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Police reported a vehicle had driven through the guardrail on the southbound lanes of the Causeway Bridge.

Local law enforcement, along with the U.S. Coast Guard, are searching for the person or people who were inside.
