Louisiana (NBC33) — A troublesome stretch of road along I-12 is flowing a little smoother today due to the S-curve between O'neal Lane and the Juban Road exit is gone.
It was there for months to make room for workers who are building more lanes, and the area has seen quite a few wrecks.
Drivers say they're glad that it's gone.
“It'll eliminate the problems we've been having here lately with the crashes”, said driver Brian Vicknair.
“I drive it every day, and I just went through it on the east side for the first time and it was amazing,” stated driver Josh Ward. “Hopefully it helps out a lot, because that area has just been terrible for so long.”
DOTD officials say I-12 between O’neal and Juban should be a six-lane highway by this summer.
