Travel Tips for Shreveport

Paddling up Dorcheat Bayou (Con't)

by vigi

The trips organized by Norris Canoe Outfitters are 'flat water' trips, which makes for easy paddling. The best thing was when we were all tired and shouting "are we there yet?" We smell the BBQ, and infront of us was a little beach with alread prepared complete burger meals. Shiok!!!

Caddo Lake Lift Bridge

by grandmaR

I found out about this historic bridge in the AAA handbook. So, since it was free, we went out to Mooringsport north of Shreveport to see the Historic Caddo Lake Lift Bridge. There were people fishing on and under the bridge (photo 5). We watched someone putting their boat on a trailer. A train passed on the railroad bridge (photo 4).

In 1914, the bridge at Mooringsport was built to replace the ferry.

According to the website:
The Midland Bridge Company of Kansas City, Missouri built the bridge under authority of the Caddo Parish Police Jury. This vehicular bridge illustrates the unique "Vertical-Lift" design of Mr. James Alexander Low Waddell of the illustrious firm of Waddell and Harrington Bridges. This design allowed the entire center span to lift in a vertical direction to allow tall oil equipment to pass through, especially Gulf Oil Company's pile driver. This design was invented in 1893...

In the summer of 1941, just prior to World War II, the United States Army held maneuvers in and around Mooringsport as a means of preparing the soldiers for war. During the maneuvers, Generals Dwight D. Eisenhower and George S. Patton came to Mooringsport and led the Red and Blue armies in the "capture" of the bridge. They also bombed the bridge with sacks of flour.

In the mid 1940's, ownership of the bridge was transferred away from Caddo Parish to the Louisiana Department of Highways {LA Department of Transportation & Development-DOTD}. Shortly after the transfer, the Department of Highways realized that there was no longer a need for the bridge to open. Consequently, the concrete counterweights were removed from the bridge's tower and dropped in the lake. ..

In the late 1970's due to the narrow width of the bridge, the flow of vehicular traffic was changed to one alternating lane. At this time, the DOTD determined that the useful life of the bridge had been exhausted and it was time to consider its replacement. In 1989, the DOTD received funds from the Federal Highway Administration for a bridge replacement project. The project called for the construction of a new two lane bridge approximately fifty feet to the east of the old bridge. (photo 2)

Due to efforts of preservationists, the old bridge was not demolished as in the original plans

Superior Bar & Grill (i think). I ate at so many wonderful restaraunts while I was in Shreveport because I was staying with a local who knew all the best places to eat. Superior,if I'm thinking of the right place, serves wonderful Mexican food. Cheese Enchiladas

Spirit of the Red River Cruise

by jholley534

The Spirit of the Red River Cruise is a quaint little one hour journey down the Red River and Cross Bayou. The boat is a 35-passenger enclosed boat with windows. You can enjoy the scenic view of the water from the small observation deck or ride on the inside. The extremely nice Captain will provide some brief history of Shreveport-Bossier along with several other interesting facts on the area. There is opportunity to see alligator, blue heron, white egret, kingfisher, gulls, snakes, turtles, and fish on the ride as well.

It only leaves out on Fri, Sat & Sun @ 10a, 12p, 2p & 4p. (I think - Call to be sure)
