Historic US 90 - Abandoned Road to East Orange, Louisiana

Also see Historic US90 Sabine Memorial Bridge, Historic US90 - Burned Out Bridge and East Orange (Abandoned)

Essentially a man made island, this stretch of land was formed using material dredged from the canal to the north. The road was virtually cut off when the Sabine Memorial Bridge was dismantled in the 1960's and the mile long wooden bridge burned in 1973.
The west end of the road (the Sabine River end) once was home to the thriving village of East Orange, Louisiana; a night club town which provided entertainment for thriving era of World War II and the post war years.

A secondary road which T's in from the south. The poles carried the power to East Orange.
Some area have been almost completely reclaimed by nature.
