A bridge near Denham Springs will finally open tomorrow.

The Magnolia Bridge on LA-64 is set to open around midday tomorrow. Only one lane will be open in each direction.

DOTD says the bridge will make traffic in that part of Livingston Parish flow a little easier.

Drivers tell us it's a project that needed to wrap up sooner rather than later.

“The old bridge is in really bad shape. The concrete's all messed up on it, and the roadway is actually destroyed,” said driver Morgan Stafford. “Hopefully, it'll make things a lot better.”

DOTD says the bridge should be completely open by the fall.
