The Sunset Limited: Morgan City, LA
The Atchafalaya River (Berwich Bay) at Morgan City, LA is home to two attractive truss bridges. The newer bridge in the foreground is the US 90 Bridge, a 1,838-foot cantilevered Warren through truss built in 1975. The older bridge in the back is the Long-Allen Bridge, a two-lane 3,745-foot K-Parker through truss bridge from 1933 when US 90 was routed along a more scenic and precarious two-lane alignment. The train itself crosses a combination swing and lift bridge just to the south of the two highway bridges.
