The I-49 route through Lafayette
« on: October 21, 2013, 11:20:53 AM »

Hwy 90 through Lafayette will be the future I-49. Hwy 90 route is one way through Lafayette. Is the plan to demolish the block between the one way streets and construct an elevated structure. Or will a block to right side be demolished too?

Has anyone noticed the ........um.......craters on Hwy 90 about 20 miles south of the I-10 interchange. YOWZA!!!, I seen hairline cracks in concrete but man, those cracks are not hairline but canyons!

A large part of Hwy 90 from Lafayette to Raceland is ready to be signed I-49. Morgan City is going to need a couple interchanges and the Lafayette section, but that section is ready. From Raceland to Alvondale...........thats going to take big bucks, aloooooooooooot of swamp to go over.

The connector will veer west toward the BNSF railroad line as it approaches the downtown area. I believe that route involves fewer demolitions/takings. The route will follow Evangeline Thruway north and south of the one-way couplet section.
