Who'd a thunk it? I'd have never guessed in a hundred years this was an interstate. Wow... It will be quite a while before they get back even close to normal. Unless we can go ahead and get Wolf in office as the new head of FEMA. Open the polls.... I vote AYE.

I remember when the first images of the destruction came in, this particular bridge was one that stood out... very striking difference, like some of the before/after shots of New Orleans and Banda Aceh (though certainly not as striking as the latter).

Hey, how about a giant wind-driven guitar? Just strech some cables across this new 'fretboard' and mount some some sails for pics...

It came apart the same way the Pensacola bridge/causeway did last year. I guess the road sections between supports aren't tied down, just held down by their weight.

It makes repairs much easier. Sinking the supports is the hardest part.

I think that's a shot of old U.S. hwy 90 bridge, not the I-10. Sparkidiot or busterb

If it hadn't been made like that, I think the whole damn bridge would be history. Or at least severely damaged.

Thanks xob. Photo #79 shows a Julia st. sign. I'm guessing the tracks are Amtrac. Anyway to the south is the corner of Camp & Julia, where the homeless, wineos and others slept in doorways back when I worked in S. LA. I see a few places I remember, including city hall for court once. Most of restaurants they show, I could never afford to eat there. The homes along St. Charles are in the garden district and aren't for pofolks. Without the mud and so many houses I can see some of the same things around here.
