Yea rly. It's really not that big of a head ache. I have never had an issue crossing Nicholson during a game. Of course I use the crosswalk where the cop stops traffic for me. I don't play frogger in the middle of the road I don't have to walk 100 more yards.

Why are you getting so pissed off about the land bridge?

I think I heard something about state hwy with too many lanes. But really it's a good reason to no have to relocate a powerline and figure out how to deal with a gas line. It would be a 50 million dollar project... That's a lot of cop hours

We walk across between Nicholson ext and Burbank and it's not difficult to do there. I wouldn't do it with a little kid though, but some people do.

Dude we're just talking hypotheticals here to make conversation. Settle down, Nancy. It's not coming out of your bank account.

If you let something so trivial as that piss you off, you got bigger problems than an internet argument.

ETA: By the way, it would not cost 50 million dollars. They can build a school for that much.

Interesting. Sure could help out a lot of students every day though. Even more so if this development occurs; more people will be looking to cross from campus to this development.

If there was a bridge built, people would bitch about having to walk up 4 flights of stairs.

There's too many easement issues with a bridge at any location with a transmission line, natural gas pipeline, railroad, and 4-lane divided industrial highway.

The same way I'm wondering how you have seen a cop out there. One of us is lying. Take a picture next time you go to a baseball game and show me.

Actually it would. Yours too. All for 3k peope to cross 30 times a year. It would be like the bridge to no where in Alaska.


And The getting my panties in a was comment is ironic because 15 minutes ago you were bitching about not being able to cross a road without dying.

And it's you. I've been to over 80 games in the New Alex Box and for the last two years there have been two LSU Police officers at the Nicholson/Burbank/Gourrier intersection. One is working the signal control box, the other moves out into traffic to indicate when the pedestrians can cross.

A continuous flow of pedestrian traffic would be great with a bridge but I can understand that the costs may be too much given the rewards. Just a thought.
