re: Today's Advocate headline, "I-10 widening garners little enthusiasm" - doubleb
Per DOTD the exit can remain open and another lane added at the same time. And it's questionsble if any businesses have to be removed. That has yet to be determined for sure....

Just got back from Rivercenter and the public meeting. Good job by the PR people and DOTD's team. The meeting was very informative. Some key items Lengthily process. At best three years to start work. There is enough right of way to add a lane to I-10 from 415 to Essen with possibly a few...

Yes, a new bridge and a bypass is huge and yes it is necessary for a solution to this traffic nightmare. But time isn't on our side. The bridge and loop would take a decade or slightly less time, but we need hrlp now. The I-10 desl could be completed in three years. We need both in the worst w...

[quote]Eliminating the Washington street exist without adding a lane adds 400' to the capacity. That is equivalent to 25 cars. Why even bother? There are not that many cars getting off there. I agree Washington Street exit is pointless, but it is not currently the problem. Though, it would beco...

re: Today's Advocate headline, "I-10 widening garners little enthusiasm" - doubleb
[quote]That is part of what needs to be done. There needs to be a another bridge built next to the "new bridge." That way there can be a HOV lane atleast 2 lanes of through traffic and and exit lane with shoulders wide enough for emergency vehicles to use during wrecks in both directions. I-10 also ...

[quote]The issue has never been the engineering[/quote] The engineering was terrible. The downramp from the bridge narrowing to one lane, terrible. Having the main artery (I-10) with fewer lane than the spur(I110) was terrible. The bridge entrance ramp from the East side heading west was de...

What is interesting is watching a vehicle coming South on I-110 and trying to use the Washington St. Exit. They literally try and cut through all that traffic coming East on I-10 to reach that tiny exit ramp. It's chaos right there....
