NEW ORLEANS — The southbound bridge of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway has reopened after a crash spilled nails onto the road Thursday morning.
The Causeway Police Department confirmed that the bridge had reopened around 10:20 a.m., more than an hour after it had been closed to traffic.
The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate reports that a vehicle pulling a trailer flipped several times, spilling building materials onto the bridge.
"There are nails all over the deck,'' General Manager Carlton Dufrechou said. "We're trying to clean that up."
