Hi everyone, since we’re in fog season, which affects our Causeway commutes frequently, I’ve noticed a lot of frustration with folks not feeling like they’re being informed quickly enough of bridge issues.
The Causeway Commission issued an advisory Thursday afternoon after experiencing a problem on the northbound lanes.
The northbound span of the Causeway is closed until further notice to large vehicles, including 18-wheelers, buses, dump trucks, RVs and vehicles pulling large trailers, according to an announcement issued by Causeway police around 5:20 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 5).
Authorities have recovered the body of a speeding motorcyclist who hurtled off the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in a crash Dec. 10, a bridge official said Friday (Dec. 30). The body was identified as that of Marcus Fenner, 35, Causeway General Manager Carlton Dufrechou said.
A body that was recovered Thursday evening from Lake Pontchartrain has been identified as that of Marcus Fenner, a 35-year-old motorcyclist who was hurled into the water from the Causeway after striking an SUV nearly three weeks ago.
The body of a motorcyclist who went off the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway after striking an SUV at high speed Saturday night still has not been recovered from the lake, according to Carlton Dufrechou, general manager of the bridge.
