The Atchafalaya Basin Bridge (3/3): With a total length of 96,095 feet (29,290 m) or 18.2 miles, it is currently the 3rd longest bridge in the US and the second longest on the interstate system and fourteenth-longest in the world by total length.
The John James Audubon Bridge, completed and opened in 2011, is a Mississippi River crossing between Pointe Coupee and West Feliciana parishes in south central Louisiana. The bridge has the second longest cable-stayed span (distance between towers) in the Western Hemisphere at 1,583 ft (482 m), after Mexico's Baluarte Bridge with a 1,706 ft (520 m) span, and has a total length of 12,883 ft (3,927 m)—nearly three-and-a-half times longer than the Baluarte Bridge's 3,688 ft (1,124 m) total length.
The Louisiana State Capitol Building is the tallest building in Baton Rouge and tallest capitol building in the United States. It is located on a 27-acre (110,000 m2) tract, which includes the capitol gardens. It is often thought of as "Huey Long's monument" due to the influence of the former Governor and U.S. Senator in getting the capitol built.
