Information on New Orleans

I'm planning my most ambitious road trip yet, and my route is going to bring me through Louisiana. I'm considering driving through New Orleans. Does anyone have any information about the condition of the roads there post-Katrina? I remember the I-10 bridge across Lake Pontchartrain was knocked out; what's its status now? I can't imagine they could have rebuilt the thing already, but I suppose greater feats have occurred. What about the other bridges? The website of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway indicates that it's in good shape, but I'd like to know a little more than that. Looking at the map, I would probably just stay on I-10 the whole way through, but if I wanted to stop, would there be much to do there? Is there much tourism going on, or would I just be in the way? I feel a little guilty going to gawk when the place is still trying to get back on its feet, but I guess they would probably appreciate me spending some money there.
