The Chef Menteur Bridge carries U. S. Highway 90 across the pass. It consists of trestle approaches and three through truss spans with the center span designed as a swing bridge.
This area was impacted by Hurricane Katrina. The bridge was inundated and it took a year before repairs to the swing span were completed and vehicles could drive across the bridge again.
