No more free boat rides in our area. What a thing of beauty this bridge is. Now the folks up North won’t have to leave St. Francisville, drive to Baton Rouge just to get across the Mississippi River, so they can drive back North to get to work, on the Pointe Coupee side of the River, when ‘Ole Man River’ is giving us ‘high water’, or the reverse trip. Yeah, I know, it does sound strange they have to close the Ferry Boat service cause the ‘water is to high’.
Personally I’m gonna miss the ‘boat ride’ across the Mississippi River. It gave you time to get out of the vehicle and enjoy the views on/from the River.
