This blog post is for my local friends.

As you know, we are in what seems to be a never ending battle about the proposed loop that will cut around Baton Rouge, but cut right through Central and other rural communities around the city of Baton Rouge.

In my opinion, the whole loop is absurd.  Yes the traffic in Baton Rouge is a little crazy, but that's one reason why the majority of us don't live in Baton Rouge.  Now, to fix their traffic problem, they want to put an interstate in our backyards.

And let's get real.  Baton Rouge has grown, but we are no Houston.  This loop would be a silly waste of money, and we, the taxpayers, the people against the loop, will end up footing the bill.  I've heard that it's going to be a tolled loop to help cover the expenses, but how many local commuters (which, my guess, makes up a lot of BR's traffic) are going to take a loop out of their way and pay a toll for it?

Regardless, I do not want the loop cutting through our beautiful city of Central.  I was not born and raised here, but it is my home now and it is where my children were born and where they will be raised.

There is an online petition that you can sign to show that the community of Central is against the proposed loop.

Please take the time to click on the link below and sign it.  And, please, there is a quickly approaching deadline.  Please sign quickly!

  1. Thanks so much for explaining this! I didn't know much about it. Just signed the petition! I grew up in Central & we hope to move there when we buy our first home. Definitely do not want a loop cutting through our central!

    And a TOLL!?! Ridiculous!


Thank you for taking the time to share a kind word with me!
