Local officials took to Mississippi River to sort out final details of the Baton Rouge Loop project.

Engineers and officials were on the river to figure where to build the northern and southern river crossings for the loop. The road project will run through several parishes as a way to alleviate traffic congestion.

Portions of the 85 mile long road project could be finished as early as 2014. It will cost an estimate four billion dollars.
