Pavement Damage on US Route 90
Southeast of Slidell, Louisiana

Damage to the transportation network was not limited to bridges. The photo below shows large masses of asphalt pavement that were peeled off the roadway and laid down on the embankment. These pieces landed over 50 feet to the north of where they belonged. This photo was taken on US-90 southeast of Slidell, Louisiana.
