Notes: Natchez is a city of just under 16,000 people located in southwest Mississippi.  It was established by French colonists in 1716, and is named for the Natchez tribe of Native Americans that lived in the area.  The two bridges shown here are known as the Natchez-Vidalia Bridge, and they span the river between Natchez, Mississippi and Vidalia, Louisiana.  The westbound bridge is 24 ft. wide and was built in 1940, where as the eastbound bridge, which carries a heavier traffic load, is 42 ft. wide and was built in 1988.
