MSY Flyover Ramp to become first diverging diamond Interchange in Louisiana
quote:

Gilchrist Construction Company’s proposal utilized a diverging diamond interchange to improve traffic flow at the intersection of Loyola Dr. and I-10, which would eliminate the need for a left turn signal at the interstate. This alternative would be one of the first diverging diamond interchanges constructed in Louisiana. The solution would also reconfigure the proposed elevated on and off ramps from New Orleans to a single structure in the median of Airport Access Road south of Veterans Blvd. The proposal also provided aesthetic enhancements that would be a first for the region that include color, creative lighting, and landscaping.

Pretty interesting

quote:

A design-build contract execution is scheduled for late August 2019, as well as a groundbreaking in the fall of 2019. This project will cost $125.6 million. Once the design phase is completed, construction is anticipated to begin in early 2020, with an estimated completion of mid to late 2023.


I can hold my breath but not that long.

I believe the i10/Pecue exit in BR will be a diverging diamond as well.

So what's the guess on actual completion? 2025 seems like the an appropriate spot to set the over under at

I’m not in the construction industry, but how the hell does it take three years to complete this?

It'll be ready about 5 years after the new airport opens.

I was laughing because they'll never finish it in 3 years. It'll probably be 4 or 5

Within the first week there will be a car on fire in a spot that blocks all lanes and causes a 6 hour delay on I-10.
