Interstate 10 (I-10) Downtown
New Orleans, Louisiana

Many approaches to Interstate 10 in downtown Louisiana were partially or completely underwater following the hurricane (see Figure 1). When these photos were taken, the city was still under a mandatory evacuation order, which meant that the entire transportation system was shut down except for search, rescue and recovery operations (see Figure 2).

Figure 1: Many approach spans to Interstate 10 were underwater.
