All lanes of Highrise reopen

NEW ORLEANS -- All eastbound lanes on the Highrise reopened Tuesday afternoon, days after a tire fire under the bridge damaged some supports.

Traffic had been snarled in Interstate 10, at some points backing up from the bridge to the Central Business District. The NOPD also dispatched extra officers to help traffic flow on surface roads that suddenly saw surges of activity as the interstate clogged.
