Many folks drive over this key resource without giving it a second thought. It offers many scenic opportunities and lots of fishing or other waterspouts activities into Lake Ponchartrain. From a flower sing prevention perspective, it does offer some pressure relief from the MS River on the levee banks, but only marginally so. When opened, it diverts only several thousand CF/M of river water into the lake (the river flows at several million CF/S when high). It does have a negative affect on the lake by adding freshwater to a saltwater lake. It's an neat drive on River road, and there's a lot to see by driving US 61 and getting off into the flood plain.
