Construction of the $803 million Interstate 10 bridges that span Lake Pontchartrain in eastern New Orleans was called off after a concrete beam fell, dumping ten men into the water, killing one of them. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development stopped the work until the department receives a safety plan from Boh Brothers, the contractor for the project. Boh Brothers is working with various regulatory agencies to determine what caused the accident. The company told the Associated Press that its initial assessment indicates that proper safety procedures were followed. The man killed was the foreman of the crew, an 11-year employee from Selma, Alabama.
