The Interstate 10 Twin Span Bridge across Lake Pontchartrain suffered serious damage from Hurricane Katrina. In the aftermath of the disaster the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development responded quickly to make temporary repairs to the bridge and restore this vital transportation link to New Orleans.
Now, through the dedicated efforts of its citizens and with the cooperation of state and federal governments, construction of a new Twin Span Bridge is underway. The approximately $800 million project is a testament to the strength, hope and resiliency of a grand state and strong nation.
