No. 7 1-10 Calcasieu River Bridge, Lake Charles, LA
While the arching profile of this cantilever bridge may be aesthetically pleasing, its steep grades have been cited as a traffic concern, especially given the high volume of trucks the bridge carries along this major east-west corridor. Proposals to replace the 60-year-old structure have been discussed for more than a decade, but so far improvements have been limited to repairs and maintenance, including a $5.7 million project in 2012 to remove rust and replace damaged rivets.
My vote goes to the one at chef pass. Bitch is tight.
Posted by Croacka so theyre only concerned about the steep grades? thats not really a big deal with regards to the integrity of the structure
The sad thing is...it will probably collapse before long. I know someone who recently retired from DOTD and he says he won't even drive over that bridge.
