Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A plan to expand Essen Lane is one closer to a reality tonight.
A public meeting was held last night to talk about the possibility of expanding Essen from Perkins to I-10.
The mile-long stretch of Essen would go to six lanes if the project gets the okay.
35,000 people are on that stretch of road every day.
It'll still take some time before we see any changes. DOTD said they'll start accepting bids in the next two years.
