John James Audubon Bridge

23 June 2010

The John James Audubon Bridge will be a new Mississippi River crossing between Pointe Coupee and West Feliciana, Louisiana, US. When complete it will be the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America and will replace an existing ferry between the communities of New Roads and St. Francisville. The Audubon Bridge project will include: a 2.44 mile (3.93 km) four-lane elevated bridge structure with two 11 ft (3.35 m) travel lanes in each direction with 8 ft (2.44 m) outside shoulders and 2 ft (0.61 m) inside shoulders; about 12 miles ( km) of two-lane roadway connecting LA 1 east of Hospital Road at New Roads to US 61 south of LA 966 and St. Francisville; four new intersections at existing LA 1, LA 10, LA 981 (River Road) and US 61 for entry to and exit from the new roadway and bridge. Constructed by the Audubon Bridge Constructors joint venture - Flatiron Constructors, Granite Construction and Parsons Transportation Group – it is expected to be complete in late 2011.
