Later this month, traffic on the Huey P. Long Bridge in Louisiana will shift to temporary 10-foot-wide concrete lanes, while the old bridge lanes will be demolished and rebuilt. This marks a major milestone in the $1.2 billion project to widen the bridge over the Mississippi River. Once completed in 2013, the bridge will have three 11-foot lanes in both directions, and a 2-foot-inside and 8-foot-outside shoulder.
