I could agree to that but I expect the feds and the usual bunch of NBR clowns blocking any plans.

I drove in BR post-Katrina and grew up driving down Essen every day. Both were hellacious experiences that I survived.

I don’t see how much worse construction could top that. Famous last words, I know.

1. Abolish FHWA

2. Proportionally distribute Federal road funds to States by Interstate-mile.

3. Build new bridge.

Hopefully this will be the southern connection of BR's new loop...

re: Bernhard says he will finance loan for new Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge
Bernhard is smart, he knows he'd profit multiple ways from this...

1) Handle the "studies".

2) Agree on a loan for X dollars at Y percent up to a hard limit. Anything over that limit is financed at a much higher percentage, as we all know it will go over budget.

3) Employ his new company/colleagues to build it

4) Get the city to agree to a fixed fee for a number of years afterwards.

A new bridge or a new route? The bridge seems fine, but the route sucks balls.

Seems to me that almost any major investment bank or conglomerate of banks would finance a project like this if it were to be paid back by tolls.

Essen is actually much less of a shite show now since they widened it.

Traffic will be bad on a road that doesn't exist?
