Bridge to the City

Your grandparents thought they had used the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the longest bridge in the world over water, until Grandpa did some rearch. It seemed so long only because it crossed over (above) two national wildlife preserves, the Big Branch Marsh on the eastern side and the Bayou Savage on the western side. Still, it took about 20 minutes to cross.
