Located in New Orleans, LA, The Huey P. Long Bridge is a cantilever truss bridge that spans the Mississippi River.  This was a widening project designed by Modjeski and Masters for the already existing rail and highway traffic bridge, in which the existing two 9-foot traffic lanes were increased to three 11-foot traffic lanes with 2-feet of inside shoulder and 8 feet of outside shoulder. The bridge spans the river for a total of 2,380 feet and added an additional 22,000 tons of steel to the existing bridge.  To date, it is one of the largest construction projects ever completed in Louisiana’s history.
