SO COMING FROM THE CITY ALL THE WAY TOWARDS METAIRIE, WE ARE EXPERIENCING DELAYS AT THE CRESCENT CITY CONNECTION BRIDGE. About an hour to take you from the bridge to here. As you can see, they have just reopened traffic on these two left lanes. But the right lane is still blocked. We know that at least one person died in this accident, which occurred around 2:00 p.m. this afternoon.
