Crossing the Crescent City Connection.

It's Monday morning and time for the commute to work. This is the Crescent City Connection Bridge that connects the East Bank (where downtown is located) with the West Bank -- a more suburban location. While I live on the East Bank, my travels take me to the other side a lot.

I love driving back across this bridge -- it crosses just a few blocks from downtown and presents a spectacular view of the skyscrapers. The first exit into downtown, literally dropping several hundred feet in a winding ramp at the foot of the bridge.

At night, the bridge has lights along the top -- that makes it one of the most recognizable sites of the city from afar.

Hope your commute today is smooth and scenic.

I see the CCC on my commute from Slidell into New Orleans East from Bayou Sauvage. It's a pretty neat site across the swamp.

Nice photo. As for commuting, North Bay has a population of 54,000 so not much of a problem with the "morning drive commute"!

Love the photo and I agree that it looks kind of retro. If you have to go to work it helps to have an interesting drive along the way.
Thanks for your visit a few days ago.
