This is a short sighted plan. A band aid and waste of money. We need a bypass. You will take property and businesses and just push the problem down the road.
During the Stage 0 Feasibility Study for this project, alternative regional transportation improvements were considered including a new southern Mississippi River Bridge crossing and a Northern Bypass. Though these megaprojects will provide improved traffic flow through the Baton Rouge metro area, the I-10 Improvement through Baton Rouge is necessary to help alleviate congestion through the area. The proposed configuration does show two dedicated lanes on I-10 eastbound combining with two lanes from I-110 southbound to make up the four through lanes for I-10 Eastbound to the I-10/I-12 Split.
