The I-90 Mississippi River crossing at La Crosse is nearly 3 miles across. The crossing consists of long causeways, the main channel Dresbach Bridge, the Black River Channel Bridges, the French Slough Bridges, and these two bridges over Round Lake. Round Lake was once a Mississippi River slough, but the north end of the slough was blocked when the Lock & Dam was built just upstream of this crossing.

The photo above is a view looking to the east from the Great River Overlook located just north of La Crescent, Minnesota, on Houston County Highway #1. County Highway #1 is also known as the Apple Blossom Scenic Drive. The route follows the edge of the river bluffs and offers spectacular views of one of the most scenic stretches of the Mississippi River.
