BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Time is ticking for residents to weigh in on where the potential site of a new Mississippi River bridge should be.

The project team will review suggestions and feedback during the screening process to select preliminary alternatives that will move forward.

The online survey to give input on 10 potential sites will close Fri., May 13.
