The Morgan City Police Department has coordinated with the Department of Transportation, Berwick Police Department, and St. Mary Sheriff’s Department and developed a plan to relieve some of the traffic congestion traveling through Morgan City and Berwick during the morning and afternoon hours.
Starting Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., the LA 182 Bridge will open for WESTBOUND TRAFFIC ONLY for traffic traveling into Berwick. In the morning hours at 6:00 a.m. until 8:30 a.m., the LA 182 bridge will be opened for EASTBOUND TRAFFIC ONLY for traffic traveling into Morgan City. The LA 182 Bridge will be ONE LANE ONLY.
After these hours are completed the bridge will be closed to all traffic so repairs can be made. Officers from all agencies will be on site to monitor traffic. Officials say you will still need to plan ahead and please drive with with caution. This will be done daily until all repairs have been made by DOTD.
