Needs to go. I take river road sometimes and see people sitting on their porches...i don't know how they can stand it.

Ok, good. It's an investment then.

Who's going to pay for it to be built?


A Bank?

No clue. But market rates on retail near college campuses are $$$.

This is going to make parking and traffic even more challenging for football.

I mean more than it already is. Probably time for a parking deck around there.



If you'd look at the plan, there are three parking decks.

Yeah, just saw that.

I approve. This is going to be nice.

What they really need is a rail link to NOLA around there.

Aside: I don't want you to think I'm being aggressive, I just was curious about the stuff.

They need to put a damn pedestrian bridge on the corner of Burbank and Nicholson for baseball games. It's always a pain in the arse walking across Nicholson and I'm sure it's a pain for the drivers as well.

Would be awesome to have this running down Nicholson. Especially come football season again. You could park down Nicholson closer to the bridge and just hop on the streetcar.

Having a streetcar run from downtown to LSU would be sweet as well.


This, the streetcar idea is great

You people bitching about traffic are pathetic. This improves LSU/dowtown a lot. I really hope this happens.

Might be a good idea to clean up the ghetto part of Nicholson first.

Ive been saying this for two years now...I hate cross Nicholson for baseball, it simply isn't safe.

I saw a kid nearly get hit because he step out of the big grass median into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, his dad saw it and pulled him back really fast. It is an absolute obstacle course crossing through the middle because many people don't want to walk to either light to cross, myself included.

So in reality, if approved, when will these finally be built? Over/under 2020...

FIFY

When I clicked on this thread, I got excited thinking this would be part of the plan.

The fact that somebody hasn't been killed yet for either baseball or football games crossing the street, is nothing short of a miracle.

ETA: I would use the shite out of the streetcars for football games. To park completely out of the mess and away from campus would be great.

Wow, I really hope they don't do that. Traffic will be a clusterfrick of a clusterfrick if they go through with this.


Do you think that they didn't account for that?

Will LSU baseball parking still be a clusterfrick nightmare for which the designers of the new stadium should all be tortured and executed?
if you're lazy and want to park by the stadium I understand. Us folk who walk 3 minutes are back home in no time

It really isn't a hard concept you wait for the officer to tell you to walk and you walk. Now If you're bitching because you try to cross somewhere other than the crosswalk u are just worthless.
