METAIRIE – The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway was forced to close as Hurricane Zeta passed through the area.

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation Executive Director Carlton Dufrechou said crews started inspections on the bridge when the sun came up.

Lightning struck the bridge several times during the storm, and debris was strewn across the roadway, but no significant damage was found.

Crews were ready to reopen the bridge by 8:45 a.m. Tolls on the bridge are still suspended.
