There is also a ferry that crosses the Calcasieu River at Holly Beach. Sitting there is much easier since the Menhaden Factory closed down. Too many big ships go up the Calcasieu River Ship Channel to put a bridge here. There is a little High School in Johnson Bayou that is so far from other High Schools that it has less than 30 students. It is however within easy bus range of Port Arthur, Texas...The Ferry is one reason the school is kept open.

Have you been struck by the jawbone of an ASS lately?
First of all I think that this is a really cool thread. I live very near White's Ferry, the last operating ferry on the Potomac River. I live in Herndon, Va. and use it to visit friends in Poolesville, Md. The "General Jubal Early" saves 45 minutes of driving.
The scariest bridge that I ever went over was the Dewey Bridge in the Utah desert. There was a van/camper that came across from the opposite side (ironically the ONLY other vehicle we saw on that road) that scraped its mirrors. It is a desolate place, and if something bad did happen, well about all you could do was say "hello buzzards". I heard it was destroyed by a fire, leaving only fond, if harrowing memories.
