Huey P. Long Bridge: 2003 Visit
New Orleans, LA
When I was in the 1981 Louisiana State High School Honor Band, we traveled into New Orleans from our rehearsal location South of the city via Hwy 90. I noticed a railroad trestle gradually rising to our left and was surprised to find it leading to the same bridge that our bus would use to cross the Mississippi River. The fearsome narrow roadway and graceful cantilevered lines were an added attraction. Since that time, I have been fascinated with the Huey P. Long Bridge and I returned on a cool autumn evening some 22 years later to take digital photos of the structure.
