Worst stretch of road in Baton Rouge?
Factoring in the condition of the road, the traffic and the crappy businesses that exist there, what is the worst stretch of road in Baton Rouge?

For me, it's hard to beat College Drive between Perkins Rd to I-10.

Government Street
All the people trying to turn
Certain sections are terrible
All the lights
The non turn lanes
School zones
adding roundabout
train blocking the road at times

Turning left from Perkins on to Acadian is a bitch around 5 everyday. Especially on Fridays.

Incidentally.... The Nicholson/Brightside intersection is a million times better since they put in the turn lanes.

Pretty much all of Airline highway between 12 and the river. None of the lights are timed correctly, there's a light every 100 ft, the road condition is horrendous, and for some reason it's a black hole for satellite radio

It's not BR, but La.1 from the intercoastal to Plaquemine is pretty awful considering the amount of traffic it gets daily.
1. Too many lights and/or terrible sequencing.
- They should be flashing yellow from 4:00am till 7:00am
2. Bumps and potholes galore
- I cringle my entire drive thinking about what it's doing to my truck.

Richard Condon ranted about this shite today. That's crazy shite that BRPD hasn't shut that shite down.

The Popeyes on 73 in Prairieville backs up into the street but it's part of the shopping center. I've seen people pulling on the shoulder of 73 to wait but not blocking 73 yet. YET.

You take your life in your hands at the Government / S. Acadian Intersection in the morning.

College between I10 and Perkins

Hate that stretch with every ounce of my being and will do almost anything to avoid it, even though I live near it. Acadian is much better at all points in the day.
