These two metro areas are so close together that I'm not sure where Hammond fits. The people in Hammond get the NOLA news despite the fact that it is closer to BR. So when do you guys and gals think that NOLA and BR will become a CSA?

First of all, I'm assuming you meant to say MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area).

Hammond officially became its own MSA just a few years ago. Here's a list of all Louisiana's MSA's: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisi...opolitan_areas

Downtown NOLA and downtown BR are about 80 miles apart with a lot of rural areas in between, so I would say it's a real stretch that the two will merge into one large MSA for the forseeable future.

No he probably means CSA. (Combined Statistical Area https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combined_statistical_area)

I don't think it's a stretch that the northshore, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans will become one CSA. With the commuter rail, it would be inevitable.

No no no, just saying that it would help speed up the process.

San Antonio and Austin are similarly far apart as NOLA and BR. Same thing for Madison, WI and Milwaukee*. Ditto for Oakland, CA and Sacramento. Ditto again for Miami and West Palm Beach (actually even closer together). Yet they all remain separate metropolitan areas.

*In fact, Milwaukee and NOLA are of similar size. Madison's more Jackson, Miss size than BR's but that's not a big enough difference to be relevant.

The I-12 corridor would have more to do with it than the I-10 corridor. Tangipahoa Parish serve as an exurb for both cities and soon that corridor will be more developed and there won't be many, if any gaps.
