Barge traffic on Mississippi, in Cairo. The ripple effect!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The steamboat industry on Mississippi River was replaced with barges, there is no longer a significant reason for river traffic to stop in Cairo. In 1929, the Cairo Mississippi River Bridge was completed, linking Missouri with Illinois.

The photo was taken early morning on this bridge. It is undergoing major reconstruction (Nov 2011), in my opinion colossal waste of money! As the traffic is using the interstate.

But maybe saving Cairo completely from bankruptcy!
