As the other poster said, it is always backed up (in both directions) at the bridge. Think its called the Huey P. Long Bridge.
The Huey P was 10 minutes from my house on the Westbank...so unless there's another one in Baton Rouge you must be mistaken

Let me know. I've been to BR a handful of times so I could be wrong

If you don't want to click:
1. Los Angeles
2. San Francisco
3. New York
4. Seattle
5. San Jose
6. Miami
7. Portland
8. Honolulu
9. Washington DC
10. Boston
11. San Diego
12. Atlanta
13. Baton Rouge
This seems about right to me. Despite all the hyperventilating we hear about traffic, the ATL is about the same as other cities of similar size.

Yep, they're both named after the same guy.

Exactly, arjay57! There are several former residents that still post here that routinely complain we are the worst in the U.S., which is just ridiculous.

Anyone that travels around the country realizes that we are about where we should be, considering our size. This doesn't mean there isn't room for massive improvement.

The downtown connector says hello . Is there any other stretch of highway in the metro area that has the constant congestion this stretch has?

Looked it up. It is. Huey named a bunch of stuff after himself.

Grousiing about traffic is one of America's favorite pastimes.

And, yes, there's definitely room for improvement!
