Coleman Brown was the guest speaker at the meeting of the Baton Rouge Press Club (BRPC) of Monday, November 25, 2019.  He discussed an I-10 traffic relief proposal regarding bottlenecks at the Mississippi River Bridge entering Baton Rouge.  Brown asserts that his proposal could save Louisiana taxpayers over $1 billion and that his proposed project could be completed in three years vs. DOTD’s eight-to-ten year existing proposal.

Sound Off Louisiana subscribers may recall that Brown joined the BRPC only a few months ago, and we were impressed with his first question.  He posed that question to former State Rep. Erich Ponti on April 9, 2019 during Ponti’s full-court press for an increase in Louisiana’s state tax on gasoline.  Let’s take just a moment to review Brown’s question posed to Ponti on April 9, 2019:

Because Brown’s presentation was one of the shortest in the history of the BRPC, we’re not going to break his presentation into segments and instead we present his presentation in its entirety below as well as provide support documents he supplied to those in attendance at the BRPC meeting:

  1. The I-10 Calcasieu River bridge in Lake Charles handles as much daily traffic as the one in Baton Rouge. It has been needing replacement for many, many years yet Baton Rouge gets all the attention. It’s time Louisiana officials treat Lake Charles better than a stepchild!
    Study after study has been done and the structural plans are completed. Get moving on building a new Lake Charles bridge.

    1. Trump I thought got you the money
      It’s not our 6 lane bridge.
      It backwards towing. Its the catastrophic one lane blind design at the choke of all chokes at Washington exit
