1919 Almonaster Avenue and CSX/L&N Bridge over the Industrial Canal in New Orleans, LA

(Bridge HunterHistoric Bridges3D Satellite)

The formal name for the Industrial Canal is the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (IH-NC).

Almonaster Avenue is now closed across the canal. US-90 traffic was moved to the Danziger Bridge in 1932.

This is the Almonaster Avenue Bridge in New Orleans, LA. It is a bascule bridge that was built in 1919 and carries Almonaster Avenue and two railroad tracks over the Industrial Canal.

[That is a really high clearance for the I-10 bridge given how narrow the navigation channel is.]

The oldest view I could find was Oct 2007 and it also had a Bridge Closed sign.
