METAIRIE, La. (WGNO)— On Thursday, Jefferson Parish officials announced garbage collection in Lower Lafitte and Barataria will be taking place on Sundays instead of the routine Tuesday/Friday collection schedule.

This is a temporary measure that is being implemented to address immediate safety concerns and traffic delays involving the temporary bridge.
