Bayou Lafourche Cutoff LA 847 Bridge
Posted May 10, 2017, by Cliff Darby (clif30 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Bridge is closed and being removed. I made a trip this way and this bridge was supposed to be the grand finale. I do have pics of two other of the remaining thru trusses up this way, though. I'll upload them shortly. When I get on my computer I'll update this bridge's status if nobody beats me to it
