Description

The only land route that connects isle de Jean Charles, Louisiana to the rest of the continental United States is Island Road, a thin, four-mile stretch of pavement that lies inches above sea level and immediately drops off into open water on either side. Even on a calm day, salt water laps over the road's tenuous boundaries and splashes the concrete.
