2. The work planned for the interchanges with I-10 look to me to be of significant benefit in and of themselves. This should be Phase 1 of the project with a pause for evaluating the impact of these changes before a final plan for interstate changes is implemented. INTERCHANGE WORK SHOULD BE DONE FIRST AND INFORM ANY FURTHER WORK ON INTERSTATE.
The Feasibility Study for this project involved the study of improvements for both the main line of I-10 and its interchanges including and between LA 415 and Essen Lane. The interchange improvements that are included in this project have been studied and will provide benefit in conjunction with the widening of I-10.
