    Good question Dan..   It's like they listened to my recommendation adding Roundabout   for the afflicted Lobdell/Government/Independence Blvd intersection

    Here it is "Under Construction"....almost like a cool/gateway entrance into the eastern residential section of Mid City..and the new brick wall at the new Adele neighborhood





    I wish that intersection was a round a bout years ago.

    The other option is Nebraska Furniture Mart which seems pretty cool too. 

    I’m  out sure what a typical IKEA does revenue wise but I know the DFW Nebraska Furniture Mart, they were disappointed with just missing out on $1 billion of annual revenue. That place is pretty awesome. I bought couch there last week.

  3. I left, miss it on occasion but wouldn't move back. No regrets. I'm planning on visiting later this summer. The last time I was back I noticed how dirty things were, and the pathetic infrastructure like you mentioned. On top of that, as a software dev, there was hardly any decent opportunities in BR. DFW has a ton.

    GONZALES — Ascension Parish officials say contractors are putting the final touches this month on the long-awaited sewer installation project required for the widening of La. 42 in Prairieville.

    But state officials said bids for the actual road construction work for La. 42 will be delayed by a month and, once the bid is let, work should start in the early fall on the two- to three-year project through northern Ascension's growing suburbs. 




    I am so glad I don't have to rely on LA42 on a daily basis any longer. These 5 year road projects are ridiculous.

  5. I do miss driving by that neighborhood, it was fun seeing what people drive. I remember waiting at a red light, two BMW 7 series directly in front, a Mercedes-Benz beside me, a Bentley on the other side, and an Infinity behind me. And then there was me, in my dirty Ford.

    My house is about 40 miles from downtown Dallas, its very spread out. The grand entrances are definitely a Texas thing. They do it on the houses too, our entryway is 22 feet tall from the floor to ceiling.

    DFW used to be cheap but in the last 5 years its moved into the top 10 most expensive in the country. The house we bought has gone up 30k in less than a year, DFW average is 8% increase in 2016.

    Frisco just passed 500k as the average closing price on homes. I have a friend who paid 250k three years ago for a 3,000 sq ft house in Frisco that is now valued near 500k. Its absolutely ridiculous how fast the price has shot up here.

    LOL....Yeah sounds more like a development for the Feliciana's instead


    All2Neat....you in Phillps Creek Ranch or Stone Creek Village?

    Neither actually. We closed on a new house just outside of McKinney near US75. We rented the first year and I drove by Phillips Creek Ranch every day. Its very nice but very pricey.

    Hurry up and wait

    Road improvements to La. 42 from U.S. 61 to La. 44 in Prairieville are still listed on the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development website with an anticipated completion date of spring 2017, yet work has stopped prior to the completion of the relocation of utilities. What is the status of this much-needed road work?

    Rodney Mallet, a state Department of Transportation and Development spokesman, says, "The project let was moved to the spring to avoid adverse impacts to recovery efforts resulting from the August flood."

  8. I think that type of store is better a little bit further out.. I actually think across the river in WBR is probably more ideal for them so this may be a good thing. 

    Bucees is building on all the major freeways just outside of the DFW suburbs including one not very far from where I live. They are massive and people plan their travel plans to stop. 

  9. I agree on the ascetic features. I live in collin county and most of the county has design restrictions. The short signs and other things are very nice. The various retail restrictions such as the stone faced walls instead of whatever cheap junk is nice. The grass medians have irrigation systems and are watered on a regular basis and mowed on a regular basis. It all makes for a very nice to look at area. Granted, we do pay a lot of money into the system though to keep it nice. My property tax rate is 2.79% annually. 


    For Ascension, it's too late but extending LA42 to I10 should have been critical. I think taking LA44 over to Tiger Bend would provide relief and a much needed alternative route into EBR. I've been in favor for a while making airline a toll way with feeder roads. I only support tolls because the road wouldn't get built without it. This is assuming you still have the free option as the surface street.

    I post the whole article because its a great article. I copy and paste and I will continue doing that. 

    Actually, it's in most cases copyright infringement. Most forums I frequent would not allow entire articles. Typically an excerpt and a link is the most you should do.


    I'm with the others. Short summary or copy the key paragraph and link the rest. If someone is interested they will open the link and read the full article.
