NEW ORLEANS, La. – The ramp connecting northbound Causeway Boulevard to westbound I-10 in Metairie has been reopened, Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) officials announced today.
The installation of temporary support is now complete. The ramp had been closed since mid-November to repair cracks in its surface that were discovered in a portion of the affected column and cap, which was erected four years ago.
“We are pleased that we have been able to reopen this portion of the Causeway Interchange,” said DOTD District Administrator Michael Stack. “Our decision to close it was based solely on safety and we wanted to ensure the riding public could travel confidently once we reopened the ramp.”
