Did you know?

The Audubon Bridge on the Zachary Taylor Parkway has the second longest cable-stayed span (distance between towers) in the Western Hemisphere. The Audubon Bridge replaces the ferry between the communities of New Roads and St. Francisville. The bridge also serves as the only bridge structure on the Mississippi River between Natchez, MS and Baton Rouge, LA (approximately 90 river miles) and is just about the center point of the Zachary Taylor Parkway.
