NIMBYism at its best. This is a long over due project.. They will make 300k+people a day suffer for only a couple of business'.
Wait just a second. So because 300K people decided to move to Livingston and Ascension Parishes and commute to downtown over the past 20 years these people have to suffer?
Adding a 4th lane here won't resolve the traffic back ups because there are too many exit and entrance ramps and those ramps themselves are too short forcing cars to cut into traffic. These problems will remain even with a 4th lane. It is traffic entering and exiting the interstate that causes the backups, but in an urban situation as it is, there is a need for that many exits and will always be a high demand for them. I don't see the cost of adding a 4th lane as benefiting traffic nor worth destroying one of Baton Rouge's original walkable communities.
