Contract Awarded For Improved Guardrails On Causeway Bridge

Causeway Bridge 3

Officials are moving forward with efforts to upgrade safety on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridge.

The Causeway Commission has awarded a $33 million contract to JB James Construction of Baton Rouge to install new guardrails on the southbound span of the 24-mile-long bridge.

The toll-funded higher guardrails will hopefully lead to fewer vehicles plunging into the lake waters during accidents. Sixteen have done just that over the past 20 years.
