Aerial View of Biloxi Bay
Biloxi, Mississippi

Figure 1 shows the three bridges over Biloxi Bay. The photograph faces north, and the bridge shown at the top is a railroad bridge that survived. The tracks were washed off but the substructure and superstructure survived. Figure 2 shows a detail of the shear blocks that probably helped to laterally restrain the P/S girders.
