Would've never thought. I guess technically the Atchafalaya hits land a few times between Grosse Tete and Henderson.

apparently being over land doesn't matter.

You didn't know the Causeway was the longest bridge in the US? How did you not know that?

I think the Chinese built one that's like 10 feet longer or some shite.

But I don' think that counts. Go USA.

I feel like I knew this (or at least should have), but why does it always seem like it takes so much damn longer to drive the Basin Bridge than the Causeway?

The top Chinese bridge is 102 miles long. That is pretty ridiculous. On another note I don't believe they should count bridges that have exits or they should only count the portions with no exits. A traditional bridge does not let one exit while crossing a river. According to my guidelines the Causeway is No.1

Guys, you know this is the OT. In a minute, someone will claim they've driven 12/10, and helped build 5 with their bare hands.


ETA, they WNHI though.

They've all gotten road head on every one of them. From an OT 9.5.

Same here... although surprisingly not the Manchac Swamp bridge... never had a reason to drive that stretch of I-55.

Thin fried catfish isn't a good enough reason?
