West Pearl River US 90 Bridge
Posted May 28, 2011, by Eli (schott1984 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Saw this bridge operating today. According to our swamp tour guide it's pretty rare to see it being elevated; he'd only seen it one other time in his life. Really loud bridge. Took a quick video and thought I'd share.
