In addition to planning Veterans Highway, Palmer and Baker also designed the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway and Causeway
Boulevard. Both are shown in the proposed views which also appeared in the Jefferson Parish Yearly Review. What would be named
Causeway Boulevard was, at that time, still Harlem Avenue. The caption to the images reads, in part, “…the bridge
over Lake Pontchartrain will be wide enough to proceed in the event of a breakdown on either of the two vehicular lanes”.
