One of those stories that just generate in small towns, a cautionary tale if you will. This bridge is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a young woman who was raped and murdered and thrown off the bridge, her body never recovered. Although no evidence of such a case exists, it makes such a compelling story, that’s almost irrelevant. Not to mention the bridge is only about 3 feet off the ground and the water is hardly a rushing torrent.

So one night I went to set up a Fishtrap… And I think the flashlight and shine in the water to find my frog on the hook! But not only did I see the frog…I also saw a lady’s face in the water and was wearing a white long dress… Now keep in mind that I only live about two minutes away from the marry jane bridge
I live right off a bayou tortue road… Ive heard many stories about maryjane but I’ve never had a paranormal experience like this before… I hurried and ran off to my house I left my fishing pole and all my fishing supplies behind me I didn’t even bother to pick him up I just ran… I was terrified I don’t know what to do now please help me!
Contact David from the New Orleans Ghost Hunters http://www.neworleansghosthunters.com. They will probably come out and investigate since they have investigators in your area.
I went here with my brother and a friend and my causin. A flashlight with full battery went out and battery completely drained right away. I felt VERY cold on teh bridge. Something touched me on my shoulder and it shocked me like statick or something. I then say an alligator in the water wtih what looked like a piece of flesh in it’s mouth. I truly believe this place is haunted.
Did You Saw Mary’s Face In The Water On The Left Or Did You Her Face In The Water On The Right My Friend.
i dont remember
One day i went on a bike ride with my dad before we crossed the bridge he told me about it of course i didn’t belive it but as soon as we cross my tire turns with out the hadle bar moving and nearly seends me into the river
On the way to the bridge about a mile or less incoming ,the spirits of about 4-6 young African American boys 10-15 years old ranging in age, were playing basketball on the side of the road, and ione was on his bicycle and rode it across the street passing in front of my car. Several times now I’ve witnessed the spirits of African Americans at random places while driving on the road to pass the bridge. None seem dismayed or interrupted though.
I think you saw a pick up basketball game not spirits
Who do i call to get permission?
Nobody, because it is a public road / bridge.
So weird my name is Mary-Jane . Too cool. Maybe will visit that bridge someday. Put it on my bucket list anyways today. It’s my birthday. Yay:)
