Thursday was a very special day for the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Bay Bridge, which connected the cities of Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian, was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. On Thursday the new bridge was officially opened. It was a milestone in the post-Katrina recovery. As part of the pomp and circumstance, the first cars to cross the new bridge were 200 classic cars. Thought I'd share some of the Corvettes that participated. Click on each car to view a large picture.











Notice the background in the pics. It is a good representation of the area 21 months after the storm. Not much there as you can see.

Following the classic car cruise the bridge was opened to the public and a street festival began with live music, food, and vendor booths.

We can once again cruise the beach!!!! :partyon:

That's a good sign of recovery.

When I was down there last year, I was suprised at the lack of construction along 90. None of the little shops/restaurants and none of the chain fast food places were rebuilding, I hear insurance costs are the main reason.

Hopefully they can get the other bridge open for the next Crusin' The Coast.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one on this site to cross the bridge. My vette was number 121 and crossed the bridge at 1658 hours. The croud at the yatch club was huge.
