Bridge · Hidden Gem · Landmark
The Vicksburg Bridge is a cantilever bridge carrying Interstate 20 and U.S. Route 80 across the Mississippi River between Delta, Louisiana and Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Next to it is the Old Vicksburg Bridge.
The Vicksburg Bridge is the northernmost crossing of the Mississippi River in Louisiana open to motor vehicles.
In 2013 state officials announced projects to improve the stability of the bridge, and to install underwater radar to assist barge captains in avoiding the bridge, which had been struck by barges repeatedly since its construction.

  • This is a very cool stop. Make it a point to pull off the interstate as you cross the Mississippi River between Louisiana and Mississippi. There is a historical marker for the Vicksburg Siege on May.....  more »
