Thibodaux bridge won't open until summer

THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The new Tiger Drive Bridge in Thibodaux probably won't open until the end of summer, city officials say.

The Daily Comet reports completion of the bridge had been projected for May, but delays in the delivery of pilings and because of bad weather pushed back the timetable.

The two-lane crossing is being replaced with a three-lane bridge that will allow drivers to make left turns onto St. Mary Street and Louisiana Highway 308 without slowing traffic.

The $2 million project is being paid for mostly by the state, though the city is responsible for nearly $400,000 of the cost.
