Interstate 59 in Louisiana was completed in conjunction with Interstate 10 through Slidell by 1966. The crossing over the Pearl River into Hancock County, Mississippi was the first to be constructed in 1958. Reconstruction of the freeway occurred between 1987 and 1989 and the bridges across the West Pearl River were replaced between 1996 and 1997.
