Old Mississippi River Bridge to get a facelift

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The old Mississippi River Bridge, between Port Allen and Baton Rouge, is getting a makeover.

Most of the roughly $100 million project involves putting a new coat of light gray paint on the structure, which was last painted in 1968.

The facelift should be finished by spring 2016.
