I made an interesting state route clinch yesterday. LA 975 from Whiskey Bay to Krotz Springs in the Atchafalaya swamp. 17 miles of gravel! I still think it’s crazy that a road can have a state highway shield on it and not be paved. And it’s an exit from I-10.

Allow me to introduce you to LA 3239. It is dirt & gravel on both ends of the road and paved in the middle.

How about more toll roads in LA? :)

I cannot see that happening. Louisiana is a POPULIST state. Suggesting any such thing would be political suicide for POLS.

Oh, they'll get the Gateway to the Gulf extension finished with tolls. Outside of that-not happening until Hell drops to zero Kelvin. On their own heads so be it.

I-I-110? A bit redundant if you ask me.

Not the first time in that town:

That 10/Essen interchange has remained pretty consistent (save for a few mast-to-span traffic light upgrades), but the interstate shields on the overhead wires seem to come and go. In this 2011 GSV a WB 10 shield is missing entirely: https://www.google.com/maps/@30.406439,-91.1025215,3a,75y,16.8h,100.32t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s1kjzOQ-ArTbNbLGZOm1udA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Looks like the latest iteration of the overhead signing has a 3di shield used for one of the overhead I-10 shields.

No, it looks like 4 characters on a 2DI interstate sign....

How? All of them just have "10", and the middle sign is clearly a 3DI.

I agree the one on the pole (Swan Avenue) does look like  3DI Sign stock. The ones hanging look like 2DI sign stock. I also agree they are all aberrations.
