The Gramercy Bridge (officially the Veterans Memorial Bridge), is a cantilever bridge over the Mississippi River connecting Gramercy, Louisiana in St. James Parish with St. John the Baptist Parish. It is the second newest Mississippi River bridge in Louisiana (due to the completion of the John James Audubon Bridge), one of many built to replace the ferry system following a 1976 accident that killed 78 when a ferry sank after being struck by a ship. While the Veterans Memorial Bridge has not transformed the local economy as extensively as its upriver cousin, the Sunshine Bridge, the farming industry has benefited from the quicker river crossing.

The bridge and its approaches are Louisiana Highway 3213 (LA 3213), which runs 3.79 miles (6.10 km) from Louisiana Highway 18 on the west bank north over the bridge, past an interchange with Louisiana Highway 44, to its terminus at Louisiana Highway 641. (LA 641 continues north across U.S. Highway 61 (Airline Highway) to Interstate 10.)

LA 3213 now extends from the bridge to LA 3127 on a two lane roadway that crosses over railroad tracks about halfway down the road.
