Also see Historic US90N and Historic US90 Burned Out Bridge

This section of Old US90 lies between IH10 and the mile long Burned Out Bridge leading to old East Orange. The roadway is still in active use as a public road leading to a handful of residences and to a public boat ramp at the end of the road. For history about the area see the page about East Orange.
