Houma bridge to close to vehicle traffic while upgrade work is underway


HOUMA, Louisiana — Transportation officials say the Houma Navigation Canal Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic from June 20 through July 21.

The closing will allow the state Department of Transportation and Development crews to do structural, mechanical and electrical work as part of a $9.9 million state-funded upgrade of the bridge.

The bridge is expected to reopen on July 21.
