the world's most spectacular roads

Lake Ponchartrain Causeway Bridge is 24 mile-long and links New Orleans to Mandeville, in Louisiana, crossing the Lake Ponchartrain. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Land can’t be seen by motorists who are crossing the middle 8 miles of the bridge, making this one of the scariest bridges in the U.S. Police who patrol the bridge have reported having to rescue anxious drivers who become scared while crossing the bridge and literally stop their cars on the middle of the roadway. These panic-stricken motorists have to be driven across the bridge by police officers. This scary bridge opened in 1956 and rises just 16 feet above the waters of Lake Pontchartrain, but the real fear factor is that it never seems to end—it spans nearly 24 miles from Metairie to Mandeville, LA. It is the longest overwater highway bridge. Fog procedures: When fog procedures are in effect, stay in the right lane only and do not pass. Form a single line in the right lane. Put on your headlights. (do not use brights or emergency lights). Stay close enough to the vehicle in front of you to see its taillights, but don’t follow too closely.
