Bridges of the Texas Gulf Coast – Port Arthur, Texas into Bridge City, Texas – 02/14/2010

I have way too much fun trying to get unique bridge shots…

And there are a LOT of bridges in the Gulf Areas of Southeast Texas!

The first bridge, entering Port Arthur from the Southeast, is the Gulfgate Bridge, more currently known as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge. It is a cantilever bridge with a 136 foot clearance spanning the Sabine-Neches Ship Canal.

The second bridge, the Rainbow Bridge, is a through truss bridge crossing the Neches River just upstream from Sabine Lake.
