Lane restrictions begin on Highway 41 near the Lloyd

You could run into some delays if you travel Highway 41 near the Lloyd this week.

Railroad crews start making repairs to that crossing today. 

Workers will close two lanes of traffic at a time while the repairs are being made.

Each lane restriction is expected to last up to four hours at a time.

At some point, crews will also have to close the exit ramps on the Lloyd, but 41 will not be closed to traffic.

Lane restrictions will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day to avoid rush hour traffic.

All repairs should be completed by Friday, but that all depends on weather, material and equipment.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
