  1. This is welcome news for Baton Rouge. I am curious of any impact of the additional semi traffic on already heavily travelled Airline and Florida . Are additional lanes proposed, or will this be another "after the fact" (see Loyola airport flyover and the new NO North Terminal)?
  2. When questioned about the expected needs of the citizens, I find DOT in this state to be particularly arrogant in their responses.
  3. Thanks richyb83, corrected to read NC. Got carried away there...................it was another one, Amedysis that grabbed the loot for Nashville.
  4. It is unfortunate that Albemarle announced today they will be transferring another 200 office jobs from BR to NC, on top of those transfers announced last fall. All for only $2M in incentives from NC over 12 years. Didn't Louisiana provide them with $3.2M in Rapid Response Funds in 2010 when they relocated from Richmond promising to create 630 local jobs. To better protect taxpayers against "money grabbers", if they do not currently, LED needs to include a contract requiring any company receiving public incentives to remain a set minimum 20 years., in addition to the other requi
  5. Another idea to improve overpasses in Downtown...................This is the Wabasha Street bridge in St. Paul.
  6. Awesome idea! I would love to see DOT and the City agree to update the overpasses with landscaping and green space. Unfortunately the City and DOT have a very difficult time just picking up litter along the interstates.
  7. My best guess is they are saving space for the Marriott "M", at least let's hope so.
  8. Ideas to consider that may be implemented to relieve congestion until a new bridge can be constructed: Build a ground level controlled access road 4 lanes extending from LA 415/I-10 in WBR bypassing Brusly/Addis with Round a bouts at Plaquemine and Donaldsonville to connect with existing Sunshine Bridge and extending same controlled access 4 lanes to I- 10 north of Sorrento. Upgrade LA 10 to controlled access 4 road lanes from I-55 near Kentwood to I -49 near Washington, basically a north bypass for BR. Extend I-110 north from it's end at US 61 to Zachary providing much need
  9. Great pics Antrell, reminds me of fond childhood memories visiting the Arsenal and Capitol grounds. Never said before, but just an Awesome job you are doing as a Mod. Thanks!
  10. richy....... While the re-do @ River Road & Florida Street is certainly a welcome and needed change, I noticed that actually constructed is not as reflected on the rendering, please note the renderings show attractive landscaped berms with trees and ground cover on either side of the entrance, certainly more appealing than the stark painted concrete walls that were actually constructed. Any idea why the change?
  11. Doesn't a westbound on-ramp already exist at this intersection? (quarter clover-leaf loops around on the northeast quadrant) How could they possibly require this from him?
  12. AMAZZZZZZZZZZING! LT I didn't think your photos could get any better, but each post is more awesome than that previous.
  13. Maybe DOT does read UP...........who am I kidding? Anyway....Kudos and better late than never, for DOT resurfacing the Florida Blvd intersection @ N Foster. Nice Job! While I am at it, maybe I will test my luck and add a few of more for them to consider: Joor @ Greenwell Springs Rds (LaDOT), N Lobdell @ Choctaw/Greenwell Springs Rd (CITY), South Blvd betw River Rd and Nicholson (CITY), River Rd betw Florida and Choctaw (LaDOT) and Government betw Acadian and I-110 (LaDOT) Any more?
  14. Good points cajun..... speaking of Florida Blvd, your idea of widening and eliminating the frontage roads reminds me of a "plan" or idea for mass transit being considered along Florida between CBD and Denham Springs....I could envision something like the electirc trains in Minneapolis or Houston, now that would speak volumes for "the next great city".
  15. Florida Blvd @ N. Foster Dr intersection.....Just whom does this major crossing belong to? Sorry guys, but I saw someone have a tire blowout here and....... I have called for months to both BR and DOT regarding the horrific condition of the pavement there only to be informed "it is not ours", the city at least tries but DOT only replies ..."no funds". Sure potholes are "patched?" only contributing to the washboard ride as one drives through the intersection, while a complete milling and repaving is required. Come on there must be 40,000 ADT between the two streets, one of the city's b
