I smell a proposal within the next 2 years.

Surprised no one is excited about Tulanes stadium!



New Orleans finally begins studying the demolition of I-10 of Claiborne.
Study of elevated I-10 over Claiborne to get underway; demolition being considered | TheLensNola.org : Investigative Journalism New Orleans

The comments are interesting listening to the opposing side.

People who support that idea belong in three categories.
1. Those who will profit from it.
2. The uniformed.
3. Just plain delusional.

No I don't. It doesn't make any sense the way it's presented. I've seen the first little study that they did a while back and it was garbage. They've twisted a lot of words and left a lot of stuff unaddressed to make this actually sound good to people.

Well I haven't seen anything official. Just talking about it on forums. In theory, it sounds great.

I'll just put it like this. The comments opposing it in that link you posted are dead on. It only sounds good in theory because they only mention the parts that sound good.
1. It's cheaper to tear down than keep: They leave out the part about widening all of the other highways and some surface streets to compensate. They also don't mention simply rebuilding it.
2. Traffic won't get worse: It won't get worse where exactly? That's the 2nd most congested spot in the city.
3. It will make the area pedestrian friendly: bringing a 6 lane highway with 6 lane feeders to the ground will be ped friendly?
4. A tree lined neutral ground will reviatize the area: Every other street in the city have tree lined neutral grounds and half of them are still run down.

1.) I couldn't imagine all the other highways being widened, and never the surface streets, many are wide enough as it is. Rebuilding the bridge? Why?
2.) ?
3.) If it's built to not be a wide boulevard, it could be pedestrian friendly. Canal is wide with a wide neutral ground but still pedestrian friendly.
4.) With you there. It would take years of dedicated projects and attention to make Claiborne alive again.

There's something called the Braes paradox in traffic engineering which is the phenomenon of traffic in an area actually getting better after a major street is removed. Empirical studies suggest it has about a 50% chance of occuring.
