Henderson Bayou Bridge work

Workers with B&J Dock work on restoring pylons at Henderson Bayou Bridge early Monday morning. The bridge, adjacent to Prien Lake Park, has been closed since Nov. 18 so that necessary repairs can be made. Workmen said the pylons are rotting. Special enclosures are being placed around each pylon which will then be filled with concrete, making the bridge “10 times stronger” than it is now. The bridge will remain closed to all traffic through Jan 18.
