U.S. 90 East
Lowering from the Escambia River bridge into Santa Rosa County. The September 15, 2004 landfall of Hurricane Ivan washed out parts of the four lane causeway between the crossing and Pace. Two-way traffic was routed onto the westbound lanes for a week while the eastbound roadway was repaired. Photo taken 02/01/06.
The causeway along U.S. 90 also crosses Saultsman Bayou and the White River. Westbound bridges opened between 1949 and 1953. Eastbound spans date from 1970. Photo taken 01/30/06.
