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.
