Adorned with neon lights, the bridge that connects Shreveport and Bossier City across the Red River is considered a work of art.

The lights have been removed due to the vibration caused by vehicle traffic (go figure). But if you go below the bridge while at the Louisiana Boardwalk, it makes for an interesting view of the construction of a 1920s era bridge. I think it's interesting,...More

It was at one time a festive bridge to see at night but Shreveport has let maintenance go. No lights or very few these day. Sad.

It was interesting how the El Dorado Casino butts right up to the edge of the road as you are entering the bridge. Nice views crossing this magnificent bridge. Probably would be better at night.

Cool old bridge from the Huey P Long era. Nice views, easy to navigate. Convenient crossing to / from Bossier City.

Distances are a little deceiving in downtown Shreveport and the river divides it in two. I don't think many tourists walk across the bridge, but it is perfectly safe to do so and things really aren't that far away. We stayed on the East side...More
