The Cochrane–Africatown USA Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge carrying mainline US 90 and Truck Route US 98 across the Mobile River from the mainland to Blakeley Island in Mobile, Alabama. It was named for the Cochrane Bridge, which it replaced, and for the former community of Africatown, which once stood on the western approach to the bridge. Volkert & Associates, Inc. design for the bridge earned it the Outstanding Engineering Achievement in the U.S.A. Award from the National Society of Professional Engineers and the Award of Excellence in Highway Design from the Federal Highway Administration, both in 1992. It is the only cable-stayed bridge in the state of Alabama. The bridge was damaged on August 29, 2005 when a 13,000 pound oil platform, the PSS Chemul, broke free from drydock and was wedged under the bridge by Hurricane Katrina. Surprisingly the bridge remained in service and continued to carry two lanes of traffic after the storm.
