The Bayou Amy Bridge opened to local traffic yesterday, much to the relief of Henderson area motorists. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development had closed the bridge, connecting LA 352/Henderson Hwy with the Henderson Levee Road, on Dec. 7 after the structure failed a scheduled inspection. The work, which involved the replacement of a number of support pilings, was completed earlier then expected.(Sally Angelle)
