After hearing about Peter Fonda's death, I remembered someone telling me a long time ago that part of that movie was filmed on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. So I hit the internet to find the scene from the movie. What I found is much bigger and better than any scene from any movie. I found real-life video footage of the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge being built. After watching this, you will never drive over the Basin the same way again.
In case you were wondering why some roads aren't wide open right now, take a look at this.
KLFY's Gerald Gruenig woke up this morning with an assignment to (safely) give us a close-up look at the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge under these extreme winter conditions...
I have the utmost respect for truck drivers. These men and women deliver most of the things we need to survive, to our local communities. Life would be very different without truck drivers. But their new driving habits are confusing to me.
