Just one more lane guys and all their traffic woes will be solved!!! ONE MORE LANE.

Jeez Louisiana cities need to invest in more public spaces and more public transit. By centering the big population centers around cars, they're digging themselves into a huge hole.

Except, Interstate 10 in BTR carries the bulk of through traffic through that area. They actually NEED one more lane, or two, or even a freeway grade bypass.

I'm all for balanced transportation and more bus/bike/walkable transit, but it's not a panacea for everything wrong with transportation.

Updated road turnback map of Ouachita Parish released 11/4/22: http://wwwsp.dotd.la.gov/Inside_LaDOTD/Divisions/Multimodal/Road_Transfer/District%2005/Ouachita_2022_RS.pdf

It appears that DOTD and the city of Monroe have reached an agreement to turn back various state roads to local control in the near future. This includes portions of US 165 Business, LA 15, LA 594, and LA 840-6 inside Monroe city limits.

I donít know if this link will open, but a bridge on Highway 90 east of New Orleans is closed and wonít be replaced for several years.  Other bridges need replacing as well.

Except for the Rigolets Bridge all of the bridges between the Chef Menteur Bridge ( http://bridgehunter.com/la/orleans/chef-menteur/) and The East Pearl River Bridge (http://bridgehunter.com/la/st-tammany/625200060800001/) are 90 years old. Supposedly there are about 5 of them.

They better not put a damn gap in LA 15 as far as signing, etc. is concerned. If Monroe is going to maintain all of that, those roads will suffer. This city is not flowing in money.

It is a tradeoff for making US-165 into freeway and to re-do I-20.

Looks like some signage was removed from the EB Airline Hwy. exit ramp to Causeway Blvd., thus revealing this gem underneath:

That sign has been that way for years.  I used to commute that way for work pre-COVID.
