10. Have any alternate studies been done to incorporate widening say Airline Highway at $100 million and removing some of the lights to make it a faster more direct route from 110 to Prairieville rather than taking the Interstate?


DOTD investigated this in the Baton Rouge Urban Mobility Plan (BUMP) study.  Model runs showed that only a minimal amount of traffic is diverted away from I-10 if we built the BUMP, or essentially widen Airline Highway.
