Interstate 510 (abbreviated I-510) is a short spur route of Interstate 10 within eastern New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. It runs south from Interstate 10, intersects with U.S. Highway 90, and ends at the Almonaster Boulevard interchange, near the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility. From this point the highway continues south over the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway/Mississippi River Gulf Outlet on the Green Bridge.
The Interstate spur route is a portion of Paris Road, a New Orleans metropolitan area roadway stretching from the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchartrain dating back to the 19th century. The portion designated I-510 is entirely within the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, though the area the highway runs through is locally known as New Orleans East.
Famous quotes containing the word interstate:
“At bottom, I mean profoundly at bottom, the FBI has nothing to do with Communism, it has nothing to do with catching criminals, it has nothing to do with the Mafia, the syndicate, it has nothing to do with trust-busting, it has nothing to do with interstate commerce, it has nothing to do with anything but serving as a church for the mediocre. A high church for the true mediocre.”
—Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
