Lake Ponchartrain Causeway Bridge

The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway (French: Chaussée du lac Pontchartrain), also known as The Causeway, is a fixed link composed of two parallel bridges crossing Lake Pontchartrain. The longer of the two bridges is 23.83 miles (38.35 km) long. The southern
terminus of the causeway is in Metairie, Louisiana, a south shore suburb of New Orleans. The northern terminus is in Mandeville, Louisiana, a north shore suburb of New Orleans. Since 1969, it was listed by Guinness World Records as the longest continuous bridge over water in the world. The bridges are supported by 9,500 concrete pilings. The two bridges feature a bascule, which spans the navigation channel 8 miles (13 km) south of the north shore.
