Yeah. I don't see a new bridge any time soon. Word is there is environmental damage to the water below the current bridge and no parties want any part of discovering it/cleaning it up. The damage is from the local industries spills/leaks from piping into the water... Like opening yet another can of worms. I have a feeling the I-210 bridge project will be done long before a new I-10 bridge is begun.

I'm just dying for the I-210 bridge to be back to two lanes in each direction...

Construction is never convenient, but it needs to be done. I'll be happy too once it's complete.

Correct.


Looks like they are making solid progress, but who knows how much longer until the project is complete?

After about 6 months, they are halfway done with the Interstate 2-10 bridge. So they are basically on schedule.

The good news is the traffic has subsided as temporary workers leave the area as Westlake Petro, Sasol, Cheniere LNG and Cameron LNG have all reached the final stages of work.


Indorama Ventures looks like they will keep building for the next year as their burn off of chemicals from their pipes could not cover up the operational issues.



When they are done, all the other mega projects in Lake Charles will begin because their funding will magically appear. Investors like pouring money into new LNG facilities after they have seen the market become saturated with competition.

^Hope you're right, man. Seems like the temporary workers will be here forever. I think once the I-210 bridge construction is completed, there will be noticeably less traffic. I'm tired of it all also. But then again, as you point out, plant expansion projects are popping up everywhere, so it's not like the infux of contractors will be gone for good any time soon.

The signs of temporary worker departure are everywhere:

1) New loans are down according to recent discussions with local mortgage company in Lake Charles this week.
2) Sheriff's foreclosure auctions are having multiple properties with no bid in past month.
3) Multiple RV parks across Calcasieu Parish have over 50% vacancy now.
4) No new, big plant construction projects have started in the past 3 months.
5) Many rent houses and apartments are available now with lower rates than the past year, if not more.

Going to be a good market for home buyers in a few years. Maybe even a housing market crash? Now is the time to sell, IMO.
