The I-10 widening project is extremely vital for the future travel patterns of commercial traffic. Not only does the intra-state traffic need less congestion, the tractor trailer movement along I-10 provides a lot of fuel and retail sales, and tax dollars. Atlanta and east coast traffic (non Florida) needs relief through Baton Rouge and if there’s too long of a delay in providing this, the future I-69 corridor will receive more of those dollars to the northern section of the state.
