Louisiana Roads - LA 169/Future I-49

and Future I-49

Looking southwest from LA 169 SB at the path of Future I-69. Someday, this will be a freeway, but until then, cows.

Junction of the Future I-49 NB offramp, facing south.

When I visited in April 2011, I-49 construction was in two pieces. This was the northern end of the southern piece, all graded and with a line of equipment set up in the path of the future LA 169 underpass. If I were to look to the right from here instead of the left, there would be nothing except farmland. I'm sure that has changed by now.

Two NB photos, the second of an older-spec shield. As I say on the LA 173 page, the first photo should have a "JCT" or arrows, or something to tell you that LA 169 is not going to become I-49 despite both being north-south roads.
