The exchange joining Interstate 10 and Williams Boulevard (Louisiana 49) features flyover ramps from a wye interchange between I-10 west and the airport access road south, and the airport road north to I-10 east. Photo taken 04/20/12.
Taking Exit 223, motorists approach a signalized intersection with Louisiana 49. LA-49 intersects Veterans Memorial Boulevard just south of Canal Number 3. The east-west arterial connects with the airport access road via a half diamond interchange nearby.
Northward, Williams Boulevard ends at Lake Pontchartrain by the Treasure Chest Casino and Pontchartrain Civic Center. Photo taken 11/20/08.
Eastbound reassurance shield posted ahead of the Williams Boulevard on-ramp. Canal Number Three now parallels I-10 east to Exit 225. Photo taken 04/20/12.
A wye interchange (Exit 224 along I-10 west) joins Powers Boulevard with Interstate 10 east. The high flyover to I-10 was constructed by 1994. Photo taken 04/20/12.
Traveling underneath Powers Boulevard, eastbound drivers next meet Veterans Memorial Boulevard at the Exit 225 parclo interchange. The east-west arterial parallels the freeway from the west Kenner city line to Pontchartrain Boulevard within the city limits of New Orleans. Photo taken 04/20/12.
Interstate 10 curves southeast over Canal Number 3 ahead of the Exit 225 ramp departure to Veterans Memorial Boulevard. Veterans Boulevard comprises a busy commercialized arterial both east and west of the freeway interchange. Photo taken 04/20/12.
A loop ramp serves Veterans Memorial Boulevard from Interstate 10 eastbound at Exit 225. Veterans Memorial Boulevard intersects David Drive and Power Boulevard to the west and Transcontinental Drive to the east in west Metairie. Photo taken 04/20/12.
A project to expand Interstate 10 between Veterans Boulevard and Clearview Parkway broke ground on October 12, 2011. The $42.4-million project addresses congestion along 1.2 miles of freeway by expanding the roadway to ten overall lanes. Work includes the addition of sound walls and completion of the project is expected by June 2013.1 Photo taken 04/20/12.
The next two interchanges of Interstate 10 are by far the busiest commuter junctions within the metropolitan area. Exit 226 (Clearview Parkway) and Exit 228 (Causeway Boulevard) serve Metairie, an unincorporated community of 138,481 (2010 census). The eastbound freeway elevates over Transcontinental Drive ahead of the cloverleaf interchange with Clearview Parkway in this scene. Photo taken 04/20/12.
Pictured here is the Exit 226 collector distributor roadway departure for the Clearview Parkway cloverleaf interchange. The multi-lane arterial, which doubles as Louisiana 3152 southward, links Interstate 10, U.S. 61 (Airline Highway), and Louisiana 3139 (Earhart Expressway) with the Huey P. Long Bridge (U.S. 90) to Bridge City and the Westbank. The bridge is the second to last crossing of the Mississippi River heading down river. Photo taken 04/20/12.
The southbound off-ramp to Clearview Parkway departs the Exit 226 c/d roadway. Clearview Parkway meets Napolean Avenue just south of the freeway en route to Jefferson. U.S. 90 turns south from the Jefferson Highway onto the cantilever Huey P. Long Bridge south from Jefferson to Bridge City. Louisiana 48 meets the two highways at the north end of the bridge to provide connections to Harahan. Photo taken 11/20/08.
Interstate 10 eastbound travelers continue another 1.50 miles to the Exit 228 directional cloverleaf interchange with Causeway Boulevard. Drivers bound for Clearview Parkway north depart the adjacent c/d roadway for northwest Metairie. Clearview Parkway ends at Folse Drive along the Lake Pontchartrain coastline. Photo taken 04/20/12.
2004-05 construction resulted into the expansion of Interstate 10 between Clearview Parkway and Exit 228 (Causeway Boulevard). The widening includes an expanded two-lane c/d roadway departure for the ramps to Causeway Boulevard and a continuation to the adjacent interchange with Bonnabel Boulevard. New sound walls were installed between the freeway mainline and adjoining service roads. Photo taken 04/20/12.
A second 2004-installed sign bridge advises motorists of the Exit 228 c/d roadway split for Causeway Boulevard and Bonnabel Boulevard. Causeway Boulevard comprises a busy surface arterial between U.S. 90 (Jefferson Highway) at Jefferson and the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway toll bridge. Commuters traveling as far north as Mandeville and Covington, beyond Lake Pontchartrain, utilize the twin bridges across the lake and Causeway Boulevard to access Interstate 10 for the city of New Orleans. Photo taken 04/20/12.
The Exit 228 c/d roadway partitions from the Interstate 10 mainline as Interstate 610 (Exit 230) appears for the first time. Causeway Boulevard interchanges with Veterans Memorial Boulevard to the north ahead of its transition into the 23-mile long Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. To the south, Causeway Boulevard links Interstate 10 with Napolean and Metairie Avenues ahead of the interchange with U.S. 61 (Airline Highway). The portion of Causeway Boulevard between U.S. 61 and U.S. 90 (Jefferson Highway) constitutes a full freeway designated Louisiana 3046. Photo taken 04/20/12.
2004-installed signs direct motorists to Causeway Boulevard south and the c/d roadway east for Causeway Boulevard north and Bonnabel Boulevard. Causeway Boulevard is often congested with motorists using the four to six-lane arterial between the causeway and U.S. 61. The roadway is not a freeway on this stretch despite the interchanges with Veterans Boulevard and Interstate 10. Photo taken 04/20/12.
Clearview-based signs hang above the Exit 228 c/d roadway split of the loop ramp to Causeway Boulevard north and continuation of the roadway to Bonnabel Boulevard. A $100-million project2 underway at the Causeway interchange between April 2009 and Summer 2012 addressed congestion issues associated with the underpower cloverleaf interchange by reconfiguring ramps between the two highways to eliminate weaving traffic concerns. A new flyover ramp carries southbound motorists from Causeway Boulevard onto the c/d roadway east for Bonnabel Boulevard. A second flyover added passes over I-10 from Causeway Boulevard north to a loop ramp to westbound. Photo taken 04/20/12.
The third flyover, opened March 1, 2012,2 links Causeway Boulevard southbound with Interstate 10 eastbound. Photo taken 04/20/12.

The Exit 230 interchange with Interstate 610 was reconstructed between 1999-2000 to improve the ramps between the two freeways and widen the eastbound mainline to three lanes. I-10 turns southeast along the Pontchartrain Expressway to downtown while I-610 straddles Lakeview to City Park. Photo taken 04/20/12.
