I think the biggest problem we actually have that everyone knows is getting over the bridge. Even if you bring all these people, add a lane, you’re still going to have more people crowded up trying to get across the bridge. If you could find a way to get the people, the big trucks, off the interstate before they get to the Airline Highway, or the Airline Highway, if you added some service roads, get the big trucks on the old bridge and make it a rule that they have to go over the old bridge, then we wouldn’t have something broken all the time on the bridge. And the people in cars could get over the bridge and back. That’s it.


Thank you for your comments. While Airline Highway is outside of the logical termini for this project, DOTD continues to study additional solutions to the traffic congestion in the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area.
