New bridge will be ready to battle storms


Hurricane Rita slammed the Causeway bridge that connect Texas's Pleasure Island and Louisiana's Cameron Parish on Highway 82, the Gulf Beach Highway. The next Hurricane will have a harder time of disrupting the flow of traffic, as a new highrise bridge is being built to replace the drawbridge. Here the old is to the right and the new climbs on the left over the pass into Lake Sabine.
