I recently posted about the construction on the East bound Ambassador I-10 exit and how nice it was to see something happening. It looks like they are also doing something similar to the West bound exit side as well! I can not begin to tell you how crappy this exit is at peak times; if you travel this route during the week, then you know what I am talking about. I am sure whatever is going to happen here is going to help, but surely the real issue is that darn overpass! If I had to point out a bottleneck anywhere in Lafayette that I can not stand, it would be the Ambassador I-10 overpass. I mean, come on, you virtually have two lanes of traffic turning off of I-10 and all of that has to fit into one lane on the bridge only to turn into a two lane, again. I am sure 10, 20 years ago it was fine, but it needs to be widened and soon; especially when Ambassador is going to be extended further North in the future.
