The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, City of New Orleans, Regional Planning Commission and Federal Highway Administration will soon complete reconstruction of the $19.5M Wisner Bridge. The Wisner Bridge runs parallel to Bayou St. John and connects Wisner Blvd. over Interstate-610. The existing concrete girder was demolished when construction began in late 2015. The new steel girder bridge is 1800 ft. long, 65-ft wide and is being placed in the same location as the previous bridge.
