My commute is 16 miles but it only takes me about 20-25 minutes



I've changed jobs twice in the last 3 years and its gotten longer each time

I hear ya. Thats one reason the wife and I settled on moving to Hammond once we got married. With the volatility in the Construction industry right now, Hammond gives me options in BR, Kenner/Metarie, and the North Shore. The commuting sucks, but its better than having to worry about picking up and moving should I be looking for a new job.

re: I-12 and LP Suck
I think a big part of it is the onramp lights. They are rarely on anymore and it seems like half of the people getting on at Range just ignore it when it is on. Only place where I see it consistently used is at Juban of all places.

It has been the worst this week though by far. There is about a 10 min window that if I get to I12 by I have nearly zero traffic. Miss that window and its 20 min of traffic added. LP cant have that many LSU students.

Biggest head scratcher is that it seems like people I know that should be taking Magnolia Bridge or Florida are going to I12 at Range now instead of their old paths. That might be where a lot of the addition comes from.

Pick your poison: LP has terrible traffic, BR has violent thugs.

Well, you're A LOT more likely to deal with terrible traffic on a regular (or daily) basis.

Damn whoever the engineer was that decided to spend millions of dollars to expand I10 to three lanes and not expand the westbound flyover bridge at the 10/12 split
you're a better planner than those "damn engineers," so let's hear your idea. after you widen that bottleneck overpass, where is that extra lane gonna go when you have to merge it with I-12?

Didn't the same thing happen several years ago when they expanded expanded I10 going through Kenner/Metairie? People assumed they would fly into N.O., but I10 stayed just as conjested.

People forget the Central Thruway opened up as well. So LSU students from Central taking the Thruway to 12 is also something that is occurring.

I don't understand this. I live right by the Juban exit and I only use the interstate on the Weekends. I take Florida everyday and I have a painless commute each day

re: I-12 and LP Suck
Can anyone tell me why traffic crawls right before the Amite River bridge? It seems like people slow down just because they're getting on a bridge.

re: I-12 and LP Suck
The O'Neal/Millerville on ramps are already a cluster frick, because they are within 1/4 mile of each other.

The ramp meters don't do jack shite when traffic is already stopped. That had to be the biggest waste of 4 million dollars I've ever seen. Someone should be fired over that proposal.
