I-10 Bridge


This bridge takes you over the mighty Mississippi on I-10. We crossed it when traveling eastbound on our way home from Austin, Texas. It was a very impressive old truss bridge.

To see more bridges from around the world, visit San Francisco Bay daily photo, home of one of the world's most recognized bridges.

  7. Been there, done that, too. Is I-10 fixed up a little in Louisiana? For the last 25 years it has been a terrible mess that rends your car into a bucket of bolts.

  8. It's always a thrill to cross the Mississippi. Such an iconic river in our history. And with a fascinating variety of bridges that cross its span. Thanks for using the word "truss". I knew there had to be a better description than "erector set," which is all I could think of. LOL.

  10. I've crossed that bridge myself! And if you stay west on it, it'll take you right into Tucson!

    PS - It was not the Mad Magazine guy in my photo (although I see why you said this), it was President Obama!

  13. Ok, it's been said... but as I read your words, my thoughts were, "an impressive shot of it!" So there. Nice you had a blue sky to contrast the gray steel.

  14. Jacob: All the roads in Louisiana are TERRIBLE. They will blow out your tires and mess up your alignment. My husband and I hate driving through there, but we don't have much choice when we want to visit family in Texas and Oklahoma.

    Oakland DP: I actually only knew this was a "truss" bridge b/c I looked it up online before posting. :)

    Everyone: Thanks for all of your kind words. I enjoy Louis' bridge series. I think it's helping to bridge communities the world round. :D
