The Florida Avenue Bridge is a vertical lift bridge spanning the Industrial Canal in New Orleans, Louisiana. The bridge has one railroad track, two vehicle lanes and two sidewalks.
The existing lift bridge was completed in May 2005, replacing a Strauss trunnion bascule bridge which provided only 91 feet (18.6 m) of horizontal clearance for marine traffic.
