a tiny city would never, but it will gladly accept the additional revenue from the commuters.

I doubt any city would voluntarily pay to build a new bridge into Livingston.


Especially Central. I'm pretty sure they already want to make LPers pay a toll to pass through.

There should be a toll on Magnolia Bridge. I live in Central and would pay it if I ever needed to go to Denham or Watson.

You are correct,
They are building a temporary detour bridge to construct the new bridge where the current one is.
The job has 5 phases I believe.
(Reason I know this is because I bid the job 13 months ago with the state)
They are currently almost through phase 1 as much as I can remember.
As far as completion I'd be very surprised if it was finished by September. JB James is good though.

I just bid a job 2 months ago at greenwell springs and magnolia bridge to add and extend turn lanes on every corner.

So expect that to be finished around Christmas also.

Why would someone want to live in Central?

It's not horrid by any means. Just very out of the way.

The part from Oneal to frenchtown is done. I live on millerville and my parents live on frenchtown. I use to take it alot until cops started cracking down.

I don't think it will be done this year. They still have to widen frenchtown and raise/widen the bridge over beaver creek. I'd say sometime in 2014. Maybe early 2014 is my guess.

Central has a good municipal school system, right? How do they compare to Zachary?

Central is closer to downtown, Exxon, and LSU than most of the AP or LP suburbs. Probably lots of residential growth out there.

It takes me 15 minutes to get to work near Florida and Airline. Takes 25 to get to LSU. Takes 12 to get to the airport. I don't travel to Ascension very much so it's perfect for me.

I'm looking forward to shaving 4 minutes off my drive when I head to my mom's in Woodlawn.

ETA:

I would use it when I have to travel down I-10. Right now it takes about the same amount of time to drive through SEBR that it takes to head down Hooper to I-110.

this thread is pathetic...do not start anymore...unless you show some half clad chick directing traffic....I guess it is just a coincidence that the droppies are right here and you get your mind off of the condition of the water and on to traffic...YOU are SO shallow...
