NEW ORLEANS -- After nearly two years of construction, the Wisner Bridge will open to traffic again this Friday.

New Orleans City Officials will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 29 at 11:15 a.m. to celebrate the opening of the newly-constructed bridge, which runs parallel to Bayou St. John and connects Wisner Boulevard to Interstate-610.

The $19.5 million project began in December of 2015.
